Warwick - Portas Pilots

Hello everyone,

As a lot you you will know Mary Portas has been involved in bringing some life back into our high streets and it all kicked off for Warwick when the lovely chaps of Hatton and Harding made it through to the finals of The Telegraphs Best Small Shops in Britain headed down to the big smoke and were schmoozing with Mary herself,  and came SECOND! Woohoo well done lads!

Now Warwick is to put in a bid to get Mary's help. There is a blog set up here where they welcome any suggestions on what is needed to improve the town. So are you a business that would love to be part of the Warwick buzz but there is something holding you back or are you a Warwick resident that would like to see a change to make to visit more often?

So if Warwick were to win how would they benefit?
Well 12 towns and cities will get the chance to implement some of the recommendations from Mary. They will receive a share of £1million between them as well as the support of the Minister, Whitehall and Mary.

Don't you think that this could be an amazing opportunity for Warwick?


  1. Hey Chloe,

    Thanks for spreading the word. It's gone MAD! Speaking to local shop keepers and businesses and also the huge response on our blog, it would seem everyone loves Warwick.

    Lots of great ideas, first meeting with the council on Tuesday. You're welcome to join us.

    Come on Warwick, lets do something amazing!

  2. Nice collections. Thanks for sharing this.
