Supporting the High Street

Town Teams

Business Runnymede has supported the formation of three 'Town Teams' covering Runnymede's three town centres - Addlestone, Chertsey, and Egham.

A Town Team is an independent, member-led group of local businesses and other community stakeholders who come together to make their area a better place to live and work and ensure their local high street continues to thrive.

The Town Teams meet quartlerly to discuss their ideas and receive a small budget from Runnymede Borough Council to support their ideas. Their projects, which have incldued things such as street markets and Christmas lights, aim to make Runnymede's high streets an enticing destination and ensure local businesses can continue to prosper.
