Innovative women at the heart of Maidenhead’s bid to be a Portas Pilot town have put together a video to support the application.
The bid has been submitted this afternoon and town centre manager Steph James has been working hard with her team to have the best shot of getting £100,000 of funding available.
Retail guru Mary Portas is looking for 12 towns to share a pot of £1million Government cash and try out innovative ways of reviving their centres.
On Wednesday women from across town were called to meet at High Street art shop A. Boville Wright to be part of the video. Each bid must be supported with a video.
Nicholsons manager Jane Wright, Steph James, Marie Leonard of Boville's and other business owners and artists all feature in the video.
A decision about the application will be made in May.
