This time last year, the Love Coleshill campaign did not exist! We have come a long way in a short time thanks to the support of local residents, shops and businesses and the press, boasting over 50 members to our Consortium. The members are all listed on the consortium page and we are pleased to welcome so many new ones following our advertising campaign!
The aim of Love Coleshill is to increase the economic resilience of the town and support local businesses that are struggling in the recession. We want to maintain the diversity of the high street, attract new businesses to Coleshill, promote increased local loyalty and ensure that the town stays vibrant and offers everything local people need.
We are working to help local businesses by liaising closely with Morrisons in the run up to their new store opening and we are also part of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee which is looking at the long term future of the town.
Winners of the writing competition can be found on the Competition Page
Here are some photos from the Halloween Crafts Afternoon. A great afternoon where we had so many scary and stylish, freaky and funny fancy dress children they filled the stage when The Herald came to take photos!
We have excellent links with all the local schools and nurseries and the full support of local MP Dan Byles who said “Love Coleshill is a great initiative, and I am delighted that they are going from strength to strength. It is fantastic for local shops and businesses to come together like this, to support one another and to support the town. I have supported Love Coleshill from the start. I strongly urge any local business who is not yet involved to consider joining.”
