 Great Dawley Town Council Roundabout sponsorship

Great Dawley Town Council helping the local businesses in Great Dawley High Street and the parish by advertising local businesses and shops in the Great Dawley area as part of the roundabout sponsorship scheme.

The Town Council have supported the Telford & Wrekin roundabout sponsorship scheme for a number of years with advertising on the roundabouts locally.  The change to the scheme this year has been to encourage local business from Great Dawley who would not normally be able to afford the scheme the opportunity to advertise on these roundabouts through the Town Council.

A number of businesses in Dawley High Street have taken advantage to this offer locally and now a number of new signs have been installed to promote the local businesses, encourage growth and increase footfall in Dawley High Street.

Those businesses who have currently signed up to the scheme are PCB Solicitors, Sweetcheeks Beauty Parlour, Tykes Bikes, Dawley C of E school and Dawley Town Hall.

Councillor Jane Pinter, Mayor of Great Dawley Town Council said ‘The Town Council are trying a number of ways to promote local businesses in Dawley High Street and the parish area.  This local roundabout sponsorship scheme enable those business who may not be able to afford the scheme normally to have at least 6 months promotion with the Town Council’.

Councillor Shaun Davies, Chair said ‘Dawley High Street is one of only a few High Streets that have a large number of independent shops located within in it and as a Town Council we know that shopping habits have changed over the last few years and we don’t want to loose our uniqueness so we are trying to promote these locally.’

Sophie Williams, Owner of Sweetcheeks Beauty said ‘I am so please that I have been able to be part of this sponsorship scheme through Great Dawley Town Council.  The Town Council are always trying to work with me and other business owners to promote the High Street to encourage new business opportunities and growth for us all’

Mike Surzyn Senior Partner at PCB Solicitors said “PCB have had a long and successful connection to Dawley High Street for over a decade and we are proud to have our offices located within the High Street.  This initiative by Great Dawley Town Council was a good opportunity for the firm to advertise its presence on the High Street along with the other local businesses.”
