This summer will see a much for colourful high street as Newquay’s main shopping streets get a touch of greenery.

As part of its business plan objective to improve the street environment in the town centre, Newquay BID has teamed up with Newquay in Bloom and CORMAC to provide the town centre with brand new hanging baskets to enhance the high street’s visual appearance.

Historically, businesses have paid for individual baskets outside their premises but the BID felt that it was imperative to offer value for money in the current climate. This year, Newquay BID has funded the set up and maintenance of hanging baskets on buildings from Fore Street through to Bank Street with help and dedication from Newquay in Bloom and CORMAC.

Fore Street trader, John Steer of The Cornish Fudge Shoppe said:

As a Newquay trader it’s great to see that time and money in being invested to improve how the high street looks. The hanging baskets will really enhance the way both shoppers and business owners feel about our town and I think it’s a great step to making Newquay’s town centre look attractive to residents and visitors alike.

Kim Parish from CORMAC said:

CORMAC is delighted to have been able to support Newquay BID.  It is a very important year for Newquay, presenting the South West in the Britain in Bloom finals.  The additional baskets through the town will provide a blast of colour over the summer and wow factor along Fore Street.
