Our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts have been used extensively to attract footfall to Knowle and been of significant benefit to our small business retailers providing them with another shop window.
We were able to draw the biggest ever numbers to Knowle for our Christmas 2019 Late Shopping Night and Lights Switch On. Although the pandemic restrictions have curtailed activies during 2020, the launch of two Knowle Heritage Walk leaflets in September has been very well received.
We secured support from the Council to replaced tired and rsuted litter bins along the High Street and supported the replacement of the High Street lamp standards. We have now submitted a funding application that will support more new street furniture.
We have organised a programme of online training events which is upskilling our local businesses in their use of social media and have supplied extensive support, as well as signage, to help our shops navigate the challenges of operating during the restrictions ogf the 2020 pandemic..
