    Damien Moore MP has encouraged people in Southport to join them in showing their support for Lord Street by shopping locally for High Street Saturday on 16 March.


    High Street Saturday, a new campaign day, aims to celebrate the place of high streets at the heart of communities like Southport across the country. As part of the day, local people are being encouraged to:




    • Pledge to shop locally on High Street Saturday



    • Share photos and messages online using
    • #HighStreetSaturday



    • Encourage local councils to make good use of the Future High Street Fund, provided by the Government to make high streets and town centres fit for the future.


    High streets have long been a place to bring communities together, a place for local people to access vital services and a place for businesses to thrive. However, the Government recognises that it is becoming harder for businesses on high streets across the country to compete with out-of-town shopping centres and online retailers. That’s why the Conservatives in government have:




    • Delivered over £10 billion of business rates support since 2016, including cutting small retailers’ bills by a third.



    • Backed community leaders with £675 million of funding to help modernise their high streets and town centres.



    • Relaxed planning rules to support new homes on the high street, transforming them into community hubs where people work, live and shop.


    High Street Saturday is a chance for local people to come together to celebrate and support the high streets at the heart of their local communities.


    Commenting, Damien Moore MP said:
    “High streets like Lord Street are instrumental in bringing people together – acting as a meeting place for friends and families and long supporting jobs for local people. Since being elected Member of Parliament for Southport I have done my utmost to encourage locals to shop in the high street. Only recently I secured part of the 675 million pound future high streets fund from the chancellor so that Lord Street can be restored to its former glory.



    “As the retail market changes, I am encouraging people across Southport to join me and Conservatives across the country on 16 March in pledging to shop locally to support the independent businesses we all know and love.


    “The Conservatives in Government are determined to support our high streets by taking action on business rates, supporting high streets to modernise and helping to transform empty shops into new homes.”


    Commenting, Tony Brough owner of Broughs Butchers said:
    “While the changing market has been challenging for some businesses, I am delighted that our Member of Parliament is such an avid supporter of bringing locals back to the high street. Damien Moore MP has demonstrated this by securing part of the 675 million pound future high street fund for Southport. When the support is provided, it will allow businesses to establish themselves within the high street, this will ever encourage more people to return.”



    “It’s great to see the Government prioritising this and dedicating a national campaign day, and I look forward to welcoming those taking part in High Street Saturday on 16 March to Broughs Butchers.”
