We are delighted that the ‘Say Hi to your High Street’ Campaign has begun, with the first focus on showcasing everything Hawkhurst has to offer.
The goals of this campaign are to encourage people to shop safely and locally, to attract new visitors, to restore confidence and ultimately boost footfall and spend, emphasising our wonderfully diverse local high streets to help ensure their viability as places to shop, relax and explore.
Historic Hawkhurst, with its beautiful colonnade, is a friendly high street with attractions to keep you amused for a whole day out. The independent cinema is a magnet for people from far and wide, while open-air markets on the first Saturday of each month showcase local food producers. Start your visit with a walk in the surrounding High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, catch a movie at the Kino cinema followed by lunch on the veranda, then while away the afternoon gift shopping before relaxing in one of the lovely country pubs for the evening. With easy bus services from Goudhurst and Tunbridge Wells, it’s the perfect day out if you don’t have a car – or don’t fancy being the designated driver.
Take a look at this video to see why Hawkhurst High Street is worth the visit! This will give you an idea of what you can expect in the coming weeks.. so keep your eyes peeled for our next videos to see how Rob Smith tells the story of Paddock Wood… But until then why not go give Hawkhurst a visit this weekend and help give back to your local community!
