Southport Town Centre is, as are many other town centers, suffering a serious downturn in fortune. Commercially, the town is dying a slow, slow death; the internet, the cost of running a business, the rates, and local taxation is placing a stranglehold on the town the likes of which we have never before seen. Working for yourself and making an honest living is not what it used to be. The pressures are enormous, and, for Southport, catastrophic!
But, there is a glimmer of hope, and not just hope but action!
We have been here, now, for 8 long years; for me, personally, a significant victory. How to run a business, not for profit, but for a Community, nothing more, nothing less… How it used to be, perhaps? The Butcher, the Baker, the candlestick maker 🙂
Just because we don’t Post too often, does not mean that our efforts have been any less than they have always been.
Come and support us, invest in us, and we, in our turn, will continue to do what we do: True Social Enterprise, at its best 🙂
