High Street boost for Bourne and Deepings from Government Covid cash
Our high streets are to be given a helping hand to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic through a Government grant.
South Kesteven District Council has received a £252,909 grant from the Government’s Reopening High Streets Safely/Welcome Back Fund.
The council will allocate it to initiatives and activities to help Bourne and the Deepings, as well as Stamford and Grantham town centres, with the first phase to be delivered over the Christmas period.
A marketing and promotions campaign involving community and visitor events is being planned, along with maintenance and environmental improvements.
Council leader Kelham Cooke said: “The Welcome Back Fund presents a great opportunity to invest in the recovery of our four market towns.
“There has been, and will continue to be, engagement with the business clubs in our towns, along with local business owners and leaders.”
