FTC steps up to support our High Street

FTC delivered on its promise to create the role of a town manager at its meeting yesterday.  In fact the new role gained a new name.  After discussion with representatives of Love Frodsham the role has been named the 'Town Champion.'  We're hoping to agree on the job description and person specification within the next week or so with a view to the post being advertised later on this month and job interviews and presentations in April.

We've also got to make our presentation to the DCLG seeking to become a 'Portas Pilot' town.  It would have been great to have had the Town Champion in post first - however the timing isn't in our hands.  If you think you can help - please be in touch!

The submission to the DCLG has to be made by 30 March - and has to be done largely by video presentation.

There is lots of hard work to be done.
