haslemere town

Town centres everywhere are going through massive change. We have recently seen the closure or limping forward of a number of big name retailers – The House of Fraser, Toys R Us, Maplins and East to name just a few.

What do we need to do to keep our town centre alive and thriving?

Join us for a discussion on thoughts from the Chamber, an update on the Business Improvement District and our plans to revitalise the Chamber website.

An outline of the evening is:

  • 18:30 Welcome – Why we are here, what we are seeking to achieve – Craig McGowan, President Haslemere and District Chamber of Trade and Commerce
  • 18.35 Future of the High Street: Crisis what crisis?
    • Background, general trends, what might things look like – Ian Rowley, Haslemere Bookshop – 10 min
    • High Street and Town Centre Attractiveness; what matters to shoppers? – Dr Christoph Teller – 30 min
      • Current research
      • Possible collaboration to better understand Haslemere shoppers
  • Discussion/ Q&A – 15 min
  • 19.30 Website; showing off what we have – Innovation Visual
    • Plans and objectives, why, where we are going
