The Chilterns in the heart of the Community
The Chilterns Shopping Centre has dedicated itself to helping the community and works in close partnership with Wycombe District Council over a number of community based projects. Annually we have held an elderly and disabled evening in November, helped largely by Wycombe Youth Action, and in recent years have helped launch the local Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. The centre has close links to both the Dial a Ride and Shopmobility schemes in High Wycombe.
As a founder member of the High Wycombe Town Centre Partnership we are actively involved with the management of the town centre with the High Wycombe BID Company following a successful ballot in summer 2012. High Wycombe BID Company (formerly High Wycombe Town Centre Partnership) is an independent partnership that works on behalf of businesses within the town centre. The partnership represents business interests and delivers projects that do not generally fall within the remit of the local council.
The town of High Wycombe was awarded the Purple Flag accreditation in November 2010 and again in 2011, 2012 and 2013. This scheme recognises excellence in the management of town and city centres at night. Entertainment areas that achieve the standard will be those that offer a better night out to visitors. Purple Flag aims to raise standards and improve the quality of our towns and cities at night.
Just as Blue Flag is an indicator of a good beach, Purple Flag is set to be the indicator of where to go for a good night out so why not extend your visit to the town into the evening? The Chilterns Centre Management along with many other partners are working hard to make a visit to High Wycombe a great experience.
