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

Jackie Hodson I see you in two photos one with Sue Barnes

Thank you

I love the idea of pedestrians only shame it won’t be permanent

Thrilled to see so many shoppers on such a beautiful day...we will be shopping there again next week..Thank you to all volunteers!X

Is #coffee1 open!? πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

Lovely to see the shops open and to catch up with a some friends.

Absolutely lovely sight x

It definitely helped with the social distancing. I loved being able to shop in our high street again. Thank you so very much. X

Can you say how often will this happen,looks a good idea.

I'm home sick so many years ago l have started to miss it all !

Lovely to have no worries about being mowed down by a car!!

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.
