SKIRVING STREET FAIR As part of the Playing Out Initiative we managed to secure a free road closure from GCC for the Skirving Street Fair on the 24th June. We had a fantastic day with a bouncy castle, hula hoop workshops, punch & Judy shows, face painting, giant outdoor games and entertainment by Goals and Pure Gym. It was a fabulously sunny day and it was great to see the cafes full and local shops busy.
MY SHAWLANDS COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP The Shawlands BID organised another local community clean-up on Sunday 3rd June. A big thanks to the businesses and local residents who took part. This is just the beginning of a collaboration between businesses and residents to tackle the issue.
HANGING BASKETS Our Hanging baskets are up - just waiting for the planters to arrive... These were due mid July however I have just been advised by our supplier that there was a manufacturing delay and now the factory is shut for the long European holidays. Very very frustrating!!!
SHOPFRONT IMPROVEMENT GRANT £5000 available! To help improve the overall appeal and appearance of Shawlands the BID have launched the Shopfront Improvement Grant.
