So good to see the positive comments about the pedestrianisation of the High Street. Should have happened years ago and hopefully will continue in the future

Our very own Conor- not only is he marshalling he is performing....
Well Done 🙂👍Talented 𝗟𝘂𝗱𝘄𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗿-𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗴𝘄𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗺𝗶𝘁𝗵 was counting the days until the shops reopened. He says he has been desperate to get back onto the High Street to sing. Conor tells the Alfred Daily about the buzz he gets from busking and how outdoor performance differs from a pub gig. You might be surprised at some of the songs which Conor says are the most popular amongst Shaftesbury shoppers.
