The shop front improvement grant scheme has helped businesses improve their shops.
Businesses are hoping to revitalise the high street after being helped to make improvements to their shop fronts.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s shop front improvement grant scheme helps businesses to match contributions and improvements, up to the value of £5,000.
Recipients of the grant include Scissor Happy in Bingham, who invested in new signage.
Another business, Piano, in Radcliffe, installed a new awning along the shop front to allow visitors to embrace alfresco dining in the summer months.
The manager of Piano, Katie Shaw, said: “The grant has helped us transform the area at the front of the business, really setting us apart as an attractive place to eat and drink.
“We would thoroughly recommend that any business making changes to their shop front consider applying for the support the grant can provide.”
The council’s portfolio holder for business and transformation, Mr Andy Edyvean, said: “I am thrilled so many businesses have already taken advantage of this brilliant scheme that can assist with the renovation, re-design or general improvement of their shop front.
“The grant not only enables businesses to make necessary changes, but also offers the potential to rejuvenate their shop front and improve experiences for their customers.”
Any high street businesses in Rushcliffe can apply for the grant.
