"Closed Tunnel is Killing Trade" - Council to Debate Beaminster Problem


9:46am 11th December 2012

A novel idea to boost trade in Beaminster is being discussed today as shops continue to struggle due to the tunnel closure.

The scheme would involve drivers putting their name and address on their car park tickets which they can then enter into a weekly lottery.

The prize would be 200 pounds in vouchers to spend in shops in Beaminster.

West Dorset District Council's executive committee will decide today whether to trial the idea.
