The High Street Traders Association has been up and running now for just over six months and has enjoyed some fantastic success.
From securing the 2019 Late Night Shopping Event through to creating this bespoke website aimed at providing a detailed look at what the fantastic town of Lewes has to offer. The group have already secured the necessary road closures and insurances for the 2019 late night shopping event and will spend the summer working on some great ideas to make sure this years is bigger and better than ever.
As a group of traders, spearheaded by Tom Reeves from ‘Reeves Photography’ the group are promoting the independent shops which make the town so unique and full of variety. Lewes is a treasure trove of talents and these can be found right along the high street. Ranging from Restaurants to Interiors, Hairdressers to Boutiques and Cafes, this team of traders are working together to promote what’s on offer.
In a time of uncertainty among many business, to have a group of dedicated, independent people actively pushing the importance of ‘shopping local’ it will be fantastic to see what can be achieved.
In Lewes, The independent traders also have a great relationship with a lot of the larger chains and they have all been great in supporting their smaller neighbours. In addition, the local town councils support and funding has helped to kick off 2019 with a determination for making sure Lewes is a go to destination for people to not only see the rich history of the town but the hidden retail gems we have.
