Bury North MP James Frith was out meeting residents and businesses in Ramsbottom this week to back the town’s bid to win the Great British High Street award.
The Great British High Street Awards is being run by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, sponsored by Visa and supported by partners. Winners will be named in each of the four UK nations and across two categories. ‘Champion High Streets’ will recognise the nation’s best high streets, while ‘Rising Star High Streets’ will celebrate those which are taking the lead and working together to revive, adapt and diversify.
“I am delighted to be spending time in Ramsbottom as part of my Big Conversation tour and meeting the people and businesses that make me so proud to be part of this community.
“High streets are the life and soul of our towns and villages across Bury and play an essential role in our local life. The Great British High Street award is a fantastic way to celebrate and recognise their achievements and thank them for everything they do to make our community a better place to shop, work and live.
“Ramsbottom’s vibrant retail and leisure offer on and around Bridge Street is at the heart of our town and I am delighted that the Ramsbottom business group are entering the Great British High Street awards so that the fantastic efforts of our community can be recognised at a national level.”
