Retail Revival delivered the Bermondsey Blue Shopfront Improvement programme from January 2020 to March 2022. It provided assistance to business landlords and tenants who wanted to improve their business premises. This boosted the appearance of the town centre and made local businesses more attractive and visible to customers. The scheme provided 90% of the total costs of shop front improvements, including new lighting, replacement of canopies, fascia boards, external redecoration, shutter art and refined brand identities.
24 participating businesses received expert advice and support from a team of architects, brand identity specialists, builders and designers. The programme included market square improvements and the installation of a new clock tower as a focal point.
Client: Southwark Council and the Greater London Authority and supported by the Bermondsey BID.
