Anna Soubry supports local shops faced with tram closure

Anna Soubry MP joined shoppers on High Road in Beeston at lunchtime as local traders made it clear it was business as usual despite the road being closed to traffic due to the tram works.

“Congratulations to everyone who has made this a great event” said Anna Soubry “there were street stalls and entertainers and most importantly lots of local people enjoying our great independent shops and businesses”.

The road will be closed to traffic for a year but there is off street parking and access to the shops.

“It’s a great place to shop and work” added Anna “I know because my constituency office is on High Road!”.
