PEOPLE have said that Bishop’s Waltham is a great place to shop, according to a survey conducted as part of the town’s entry into a high street competition.

Bishop’s Waltham Town Team has entered its high street into the Association for Town and City Management’s Great British High Street of the Year competition.

If successful, Bishop’s Waltham could win a share of £50,000.

As part of the preparation, the team completed 
an online survey of 293 residents.

More than 62 per cent rated the appearance of the high street as very good, 95 per cent rated the variety of shops as good or very good and 91 per cent said they had noticed an increase in events over the last 18 months.

The team thanked everyone who took the time to respond to the survey.
