Poole’s High Street is shortlisted for award

October 26, 2018 by  

Poole High Street has a chance of winning at the Great British High Street Awards.

On behalf of the high street, Poole Business Improvement District applied for the shortlisting to the awards in August. A team associated with the awards then visited the town. These individuals engaged with locals and tourists before making a decision.

It seems that Poole scored well in terms of community, digital transformation, environment, and customer experience. Visa is the sponsor of the awards while additional support is provided by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The prestigious event will take place in November. Business cards can be an asset at events of all types. The manager of Poole Business Improvement District, Justin Hundley-Appleton, told the Bournemouth Echo:

“We are all incredibly proud of everything that Poole has achieved in the last 18 months, and while there’s still improvements to be made it’s great to be honoured on this national level.”

Hundley-Appleton wants local people to get involved in the process. He advocates the use of social media to drum up support for the high street. In particular, he wants citizens to share their enthusiasm by employing the hashtags #MyHighStreet and #GBHSPoole.

This strategy has potential because the votes of the public will have an influence on the eventual outcome. The period of voting is going to come to an end on the 31st October.
