Uppingham Town Council seeks views on how to spend a £10,000 high street recovery grant
Shoppers, businesses and community groups have been asked how the high street should be supported.
Uppingham has been awarded £10,000 from Rutland County Council as a “welcome back” grant following the coronavirus pandemic.
The money should be used to help businesses recover following months of closures and restrictions.
A working group has been established to spend the money and Uppingham Town Council is looking for ideas.
Uppingham mayor Steve Rozak said: “The High Street in Uppingham has already opened safely and it is great to see how well it is being supported by the local community.
“We want this funding to be used to ensure that Uppingham continues to be a safe and attractive place to visit as the country eases restrictions.
“We will be working with businesses in the town to achieve this.”
The council’s priority is to spend the money in a “swift and impactful way” which is why it is calling on people to share their views as soon as possible.
