Must read

Costa is supporting the search for the country’s best high street. The Great British High Street Competition is now open to local teams of people in England, Wales and Scotland to help champion people in communities and local high streets, with the chance for a community to share a £50,000 prize.

Jim Slater, Managing Director of Costa UK said, “Community is at the heart of Costa’s values, that’s why we are calling on our customers and staff to support their local community and the wonderful work they do by getting involved with The Great British High Street Awards.

The new ‘rising star’ category is a great way to reward a town that has transformed its fortune, giving it a boost for an even brighter future.”

Costa joins Boots and Argos in the search, with Google on board to provide digital workshops to the top 100 retailers in each of the seven winning locations of the Great British High Street Competition.

The seven categories are: best city centre high street, best town centre high street, best market town high street, best coastal community high street, best village high street, best parade of shop and best London high street.

The entry date has been extended to the 1st September 2015 and people can now go online to register or vote at

From mid-September and for the first time the public will also have the chance to vote directly for their best-loved high street. The winning high street will be announced in October 2015.
