Buxton Traders group is tasking itself to help Buxton Town Centre acheive its full potential by filling empty shops and increasing the diversity of the shopping experience, to give the thousands of visitors every year more reasons to talk favourably about the town and return time and time again.
The main issues to be discused to help achieve these aims are:
The high business rates in Buxton
Giving greater assistance to help new business owners set up
The reduction or removal on some days of car parking fees
Family Jubilee Fun Day Monday June 4th
A special fun day has been organised on the Queen's Diamond Jublilee to help raise funds for The Buxton Traders whilst half the proceeds will be donated to Blythe House Hospice.
Events will include:
Street performers, including a prize of £300 for the best on the day

Contact Sam Copley on 07791 518949 to enter the competion, or to book a table, stall or donate tombolla and raffle prizes.
The day will run from 10am to 4pm.
Meeting not to be missed.
To get behind the Buxton improvement plan and have your input, as many local businesses as possible are being invited to attend a meeting at Chippy's Plaice, Spring Gardens on Wednesday June 5th at 6pm.
