Over the past few weeks Louth’s shops and businesses have got behind the Love Louth entry into the annual ‘Great British High Street’ competition.

The panel for the award have now agreed the shortlist, but unfortunately Louth’s entry in the Market Town category didn’t make it.

However, Louth Town Manager Nicola Marshall is clear that entering the competition was a positive activity for Louth.

“We were one of only two entrants from Lincolnshire, with Market Rasen being the other one, and in the East Midlands we were among a group of seven other entries,” said Nicola. “This competition is a national, government-owned initiative and it is imperative that Louth takes part in such high-profile activities.

“The businesses in Louth have got behind the competition by displaying the poster in their window and promoting our entry on their social media outlets.

“The competition has been an opportunity to showcase all that is good about Louth’s ‘High Street’ and our entry showed the areas that the town can work on to improve our chances in future awards.”

Nicola added: “I would like to thank all the businesses for being so positive about our entry. Businesses should continue to use the #gbhighst to promote themselves though.

“Keep posting your pictures and comments - it’s all great publicity for you and for Louth.”
