Applications for grant cash to make over shop fronts pour in

Have your say

BUSINESSES in Grantham are taking advantage of a scheme run by the district council which will see their shop front given a make-over.

South Kesteven District Council launched the ‘Shop Front Grant Scheme’ in the spring, inviting businesses, particularly those in Westgate and Market Place, to apply for help in making their shop fronts more attractive.

Eight shops have taken up the scheme, which ties in with the £1.7 million regeneration of the Market Place.

Councillor Frances Cartwright, portfolio holder for economic development, said: “As a council we want to do all we can to support local traders and so I am thrilled that people have come onboard with this initiative.”
