Traders' £10,000 grant to promote Georgian Quarter
TRADERS hoping to create a Georgian Quarter that will promote Beverley's North Bar as a premier shopping destination have been given a £10,000 grant.
Following the unsuccessful bid for £100,000 through a scheme run by Government shops tsar Mary Portas, traders applied to a separate scheme through Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart.
Work is already under way on imaginative ways to promote North Bar.
David Bird, of Carol Bird Interiors, said: "We're delighted to get the money. It's obvious central Government looked at all the bids and realised there were some good bids and it would be a shame for them to go to waste.

"Plans have been in place since Christmas to establish the Georgian Quarter as a premier lifestyle and shopping destination. "This will help to achieve our goals."
At this week's Beverley Town Council meeting the authority gave its blessing to a proposal that will see banners erected in North Bar. The banners will be subject to East Riding Council approval.
Councillor Martin Cox said the Georgian Quarter should be congratulated.
