Cricklewood received a package of support to help it become a more cohesive, accessible and thriving local town; this included shop fronts and building improvements, shop forecourts, shop window displays, site activation, new festive lighting, graphic identity and community website. The work was underpinned by an extensive survey and business support programme delivered by Retail Revival, where 230 businesses were engaged along Cricklewood Broadway. Local students were engaged to provide window art and deliver high street promotions and bespoke props were built for creative window displays. The walking restaurant encouraged groups of residents to eat a starter, main course and pudding in three different restaurants to showcase the variety of cuisine available and a food poster was created to explain how to cook and prepare ethnic ingredients.
