Shop Front Improvement Grant

Our Shop Front Improvement Grant is still open for applications, so if you are thinking about improving the front of your business now is the time to do it.

Almost 20 local businesses have already benefitted from this project and we have made it as easy as possible for you to apply for your grant.
