Earlier this year the Deal Town Team was formed to provide a focus for the direction of Deal High Street and to come up with ideas to ensure our town continues to thrive with independent businesses.
Deal has just been awarded £10,000 from the Government to help these aims, and I organised a meeting with traders, local politicians and the council to discuss how best to spend this money to maximise the effects.
It was a really successful meeting with some great ideas discussed. More details should be announced soon, but the most important outcome was to agree that this should be run and administered by the traders themselves, who know what will be most successful, and what the High Street needs.
