Burnham-on-Sea businesses spruce up shop fronts with grant boost

Independent retailers in Burnham are enhancing their shop fronts thanks to a grant scheme in connection with the Burnham Evolution Plan.

Nearly 20 shop owners or lessees applied for grant funding to up the value of £1,000 in the summer to enhance and improve their store frontage in Burnham town centre. Properties in High Street as well as feeder streets could also apply to the Shop Front Grant Scheme, including those in Victoria Street, Regent Street, Cross Street and more.

So far, works have been carried out on six shop fronts in Burnham, which are at Julia’s Flowers, Macbeth Funeral Services, Cafe Aroma, Secret World Wildlife Rescue and The Laptop Shop, as well as Prim N Proper Pamper.

Other shops to apply to the Shop Front Grant Scheme in Burnham are:

. A K Autos
. Antony James
. Beauty Oasis Day Spa
. Brit Chips
. Chintz Tea Room
. DusiCake
. Julians
. Kemp Hall Chartered Certified Accountants
. Material Needs
. May’s Cafe
. Peter’s Hair Stylist
. Prim N Proper
. Seafoods

Retailers and service providers who applied for funding can use the money to spruce up their shop fronts’ signs, shutter graphics, make repairs to structures and/or services, as well as make improvements to premises fittings.

Commenting on the grant scheme, Town Mayor, Cllr Mike Facey, said: “I am greatly pleased to see the work which has already gone into shop fronts awarded funding across the town centre. The finished result looks marvellous and it is a real boost for Burnham-on-Sea, especially as it will attract new business to the town centre.

“I look forward to seeing other businesses complete their enhancements and improvements to their shop fronts in due course.”
