The Welsh Government launched its Support Your High Street campaign last year to celebrate the valuable contribution our busy high streets make to the Welsh economy, as well as the vital role they play in community life.
A key action in the Vibrant and Viable Places Regeneration Framework, the aim is to encourage people and communities to use their local high streets.
The campaign is also running this year, with High Street Week taking place from September 19 – 26 with a new feature - the High Street Heroes Awards.This year’s campaign and the High Street Heroes Awards were launched on June 5 by the Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty, Lesley Griffiths AM.
Mike Edwards, of Llangollen Cittaslow community group, has nominated the team at Gwyn the Butchers in Castle Street as High Street Heroes.And Mike said: “Can I urge everyone through llanblogger to vote for Gwyn, Richard and Callum our wonderful local independent butcher.”
Voting for the High Street Heroes Awards is online via the Support Your High Street Facebook page Support Your High Street Facebook page (external link).
