Pushing for Portas

Today I joined local businesses to drum up support to improve Dover's high street. There are funds available in the Mary Portas initative to improve our high streets.

A key part of the bid is getting the support of the local community. So I joined local businesswoman Louise Miller who is spearheading the bid team, Dover Mayor Cllr Ronnie Philpott and Cllr Sue Jones to get signatures of support.




We really need to breathe more life into our high streets. It's great to see local businesses taking the lead. And it was really great to support our local businesses in partnership with the Mayor of Dover and the town council.

It's working together across the board like this that gets things done.
