Test Valley Borough Council will be out and about in the week beginning 9th December to speak with retailers off the main High Street.

As part of the Council’s work to continue to progress the actions resulting from the Andover Summit, they plan to develop signage to direct customers to businesses in Black Swan Yard, George Yard, Globe Yard, Shaw’s Walk, Union Street and Waterloo Court.

They would like to hear these retailers thoughts about signage and how it could help improve awareness of businesses off the main High Street. They are planning to pop in to talk with them during the week of 9th December.

However, if you want to know more, email atowncentre@testvalley.gov.uk  or call Alex Hoare, Arts Officer on 01264 368000.

  • My son and I have been trading as Ben’s Quality Drycleaners for some 11 years and have long complained about the lack of signage for Union Street especially from the High Street. The present sign post, though pretty, is insignificant and unreadable and the list of shops on the inner wall does nothing to encourage the public to venture up the road. Also,the use of A frames placed at the bottom of Union Street has been frowned upon although these obviously work.

    Could we not have instead highly visible signage from George Yard car park, a review of the possibility of signage over the arch of the street itself and a very visible drop down sign from a significant signpost. Perhaps too, a timetable for willing participants taking turns to put out an A frame so that not too many are there becoming a nuisance to pedestrians and incurring the wrath of TVBC!

    We would love to talk to one of your representatives and as time is getting on perhaps you could ring us on 01264 352684 or Ben himself on 07951589470. He has lots of ideas!!!
