Shop fronts in Bourne have had much-needed makeovers thanks to a shop front regeneration scheme funded by South Kesteven District Council.
To date seven projects have been completed costing £22,653 with a further four on the cards costing another £22,718.
The district council’s portfolio holder for grow the economy- economic development, Coun Frances Cartwright said: “This scheme is one of a number of important initiatives to encourage people to visit Bourne and help new and existing businesses to thrive.
“The Shop Front Grant Scheme has made a big difference to the appearance of the town and I am thrilled business owners have seized this opportunity.”
The latest project to complete in Bourne was Newton Fallowell Estate Agents on North Street.
Director Chris Lett said: “I am very pleased with how the work has turned out. It has definitely improved the look of the shop and it stands out a lot more.”
Other Bourne businesses involved in the scheme include North Shoes, Rosedale, The Salvation Army, Time for Tea, A Cliffe, Accountancy East, Joy of Flowers, Harrison and Dunn and Fordham Fancies.
