There is just one week left to apply to the Great British High Street Awards (Thursday 4 July 2019), through which high streets are eligible to win up to £15,000 for their local community.

This scheme provides an opportunity for councils, businesses, community groups and volunteers to learn from the leading examples of the ways in which high streets are succeeding in overcoming the challenges of a rapidly changing environment.

Winners will be named in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Champion High Street category will recognise the nation’s best high streets whilst 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.

Application form and guidance can be downloaded from the website or you can contact the organisers at greatbritishhighstreet@communities.gsi.gov.uk for further information and advice.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 23.59 on 4 July 2019. Link: https://thegreatbritishhighstreet.co.uk/high-street-of-the-year-awards
