post-image 16th November 2016

WeAreWaterloo, our neighbouring Business Improvement District is aiming to make Lower Marsh & The Cut Great British High Street of the Year, and you can help! 

The two central London streets have been nominated as contenders for this prize, which saw a record 900 entries across 14 categories. The Great British public now have the ability to vote in support of this local haven of independent shops in an area where much of the shopping is chain based.
The Great British High Street Competition 2016 was created to celebrate the work that is being done by local business owners to revive, adapt and diversify the nation’s high streets. For the Cut and Lower Marsh, winning would recognise the gargantuan amount of work the streets have done to not only survive in central London, but flourish.

WeAreWaterloo BID Chief Executive, Ben Stephenson said: “We are delighted but not surprised that Lower Marsh & The Cut have been shortlisted as one of the best high streets in the UK. Seeing how hard our shopkeepers, publicans, restauranteurs and hairdressers work is an inspiration and we are urging everyone to vote for them in support.”

High Streets Minister Andrew Percy said: “Our high streets are the life and soul of towns, villages and cities across the country and the record number of competition entries, this year is proof of their continued importance to local life. “From North London to Northumberland, great work is underway to adapt the high street to the needs of modern life. “I want to wish all who’ve entered the very best of luck.”
