It’s good to see new businesses moving into some of our empty premises and hope that eventually more will be occupied.
Welcome to Hisar Meze Bar (ex-KFC) to 68 High Street. We wish them every success for the future.
Wickham Foodstore will be opening shortly in the old supa-electrics premises, 89-91 High Street; we look forward to the ‘Grand Opening’!
Sadly, Goodman’s Furnishings, Red Lodge Road, has closed its doors after many years of trading in West Wickham.
West Wickham is ‘the place to be’ for the well dressed male – see short feature included in the Summer Newsletter, about Gino’s, Station Road and AG Plado, the High Street.
Business Improvement District (BID)
West Wickham businesses are currently considering a BID initiative to help bring improvements to The High Street and surrounding streets. If brought to a successful conclusion, businesses will contribute a percentage of their rateable value, as will the Council and a dedicated person will be employed to arrange events to increase footfall on the high street. Marshalling events and so forth will have to be carried out by the traders. It is expected to raise £120,000p.a.
