Both in the press and in our resident and community forums, Labour’s Old Town Councillor Jim Brown is working to support our High Street’s success, however the closure of our last bank is a devastating loss for our area. As pointed out by Jim. “I know that many High Street businesses are cash only, and for many people, getting to the town centre will be time consuming and expensive. Our Old Town High Street is probably the most successful in Hertfordshire. Let’s keep it that way.”
Following up on his idea Jim is now helping to organise a forum in September to discuss the future of our High Street to support residents and businesses alike.
