BBC South Today will be featuring an article on the A-Boards in Andover after 4 shops had theirs removed by Hampshire County Council yesterday (Friday 20th February).
The BBC reporter said he expected the report to appear on the 6.20pm broadcast on BBC1.
Organised by Larna Burley from Burley’s Bridal, a group of business owners gathered by the Time Ring in town as they were interviewed, some of which is expected to appear in the broadcast.
Jarred from Heavenly Sweets in Union Street said he would have to pay a £33 fine plus £10 a day storage for the A-Board that was taken.
As if to emphasise the struggle for the shops, a shopper at the bottom of Union Street asked if there was a Thornton’s shop in town and was then directed up Union Street to the shop.
“This is why Andover needs the A-Boards” she said.
