It was amazing to hear that Deal High Street had won the Daily Telegraph's prestigious High Street of the Year Award. Deal fought off intesne competition from over 500 High Streets across the UK to take the award.
The judges said Deal is "a very good example to other struggling high streets of how an engaged local community, with support from local and national government, can match enthusiasm for their high street with good and innovative practice."
It was great to join Local Government Minister, Brandon Lewis, and the Mayor of Deal. It truly was a terrific day. I am glad Deal is getting the recognition it deserves as an amazing example of how we can boost our High Streets and promote local business
