The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has launched the 2018 Great British High Street Awards. The Awards recognise and celebrate local achievements on Britain’s high streets and support the communities in which they live and work.
High streets are eligible to win up to £10,000 for their local community, plus the opportunity for their local businesses and consumers to participate in a Visa GBHS Spend & Win Competition, which rewards the people that make our high streets so special.
Winners will be named in each of the four UK nations across two categories:
The Champion High Street category will recognise the nation’s best high streets.
The Rising Star High Street category will recognise the nation’s most ambitious high streets, which are taking the lead and working together to revive, adapt and diversify.
An overall High Street of the Year in Great Britain and Northern Ireland will also be named.
The awards are open to:
- Business Improvement District
- Local Authority
- Parish Council
- Town Team
- Coastal Community Team
- Town Centre Partnership
- Community Interest Company
- Chambers of Commerce
- Trading Association
Entries close at 23.59 on the 22nd August 2018.
