IN 2015, Alcester won a Rising Star in the Great British High Street Awards, a big accolade for the historic market town whose business community has decided to go one step better and aim for the top prize in this year’s Great British High Street Awards which focus on community, environment, customer experience and digital.
Organisers for Alcester’s bid this time round are asking for the public to help but the closing date is Monday 3rd September so social media submissions from the public have to be with organisers by that date.
Great British High Street judges are looking for supporting social media engagement via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and You Tube.
They want selfies with the town’s favourite shopkeepers and they want to know why the people of Alcester love the town and why Alcester should be crowned Great British High Street of the year.
To help the campaign, attach pictures, tell stories, tag the shops, cafes, pubs and businesses in #MyHighStreet and @visitalcester in all posts.
