The event, to be held at The Pheasant Inn (Newport) on Tuesday 13th February at 5.30pm will cover a range of initiatives and will address some of the challenges facing Newport High Street. Proprietors and mangers of shops, cafes and pubs and any interested parties (Members or non members) are being invited by Newport Town Team and All About Newport Ltd the online marketing organisation which is successfully promoting the town as a ‘brand’. All About Newport’s social media platforms alone reach an audience of over 50,000 a week
There is much talk at the moment about High Streets and the challenges they face– with Newport being no exception.
Mike Atherton (Town Team Manager) commented 'There are several ways to counter this – but it starts with joining together as a business community to share ideas to make sure that Newport is making the most of its assets and doing all it can to welcome tourists and encouraging residents to shop and spend locally.
Newport is a great town and has so much to offer – many people envy what we have here and we want to keep it that way, preserving its charm and vibrancy.'
The meeting will include an overview of the Town Centre Heath Check Results. Great British High Streets Fund. English Tourism week - 50 great ideas. Discussion On Newport Food Frenzy and a general brainstorming of ideas.
