Tatton MP George Osborne has today met with Mrs Susan Heyes and two local residents outside the Spar shop on Wilmslow Road as part of Anchor’s Standing Up 4 Sitting Down Campaign.
Anchor’s campaign is calling for high streets and retailers to improve the lives of elderly people by providing adequate seating in public spaces. This follows evidence that older people are currently unable to access their high streets and shopping centres as much as they’d like due to a lack of seating and resting areas.
George said, “I was delighted to support this campaign on my visit to Handforth. More seating in public spaces will hopefully improve the quality of life for elderly people and boost footfall on the high street, which is a win win.”
