The Great British High Street of the Year Award 2014
Broxburn and Uphall Town Centre has been shortlisted for the Great British High Street Award. The aim of this competition is to celebrate the incredible diversity and services that British high streets provide. It was open to Town Teams and recognized local partnerships who nominated a high street in their area. Broxburn and Uphall Town Centre have been shortlisted in the “Village” category along with projects from Meltham in Yorkshire and East Shilton in Leicester. The results will be announced in weeks following judges visit.
This is a big recognition of the excellent partnership working between local businesses, local community groups and public service. This is also a good opportunity to showcase Broxburn and Uphall to a wider UK audience and promote our joint working achievements.
