Spring late-night shopping event hailed a success

GORING’S first late-night shopping event has been hailed a success.

GORING’S first late-night shopping event has been hailed a success.

Eleven businesses in High Street stayed open until at least 7.30pm on Thursday last week and laid on refreshments for customers. They also donated prizes to a draw which took place at the end of the evening. Among the winners were Sally Wicks, who won a haircut at Albert Fields hairdressers, and Emily Clements, who left with a bottle of champagne from Warmingham estate agents.

Also taking part were gift shop Inspiration, Swift Ink printers, the Village Café, Napper’s Fine Foods, Mountain Mania Cycles, the Goring Veterinary Centre, Mary S Interiors, art gallery Art@Goring and estate agents Davis Tate.

Inspiration provided yellow balloons to mark which shops were staying open and gave participants free sweets and fudge for their customers. Dawn Roberts, who co-chairs the Goring Gap Business Network, which organised the night, said: “This was an amazing effort by everyone concerned. The aim was to make shopping more convenient for everyone in and around the village and create a thriving community.”
