Dacorum Borough Council is encouraging residents to support their local high streets as non-essential shops reopen in stage two of the Prime Minister's roadmap out of lockdown.

The council will be in Hemel Hempstead town centre this Saturday (April 24) to promote their new partnership with LoyalFree.

The LoyalFree app, available to download now, promotes high street businesses throughout the borough for free, whilst also providing a range of local offers, deals, event listings, interactive trails and more.

A small team from the council along with representatives from the Hemel Business Improvement District will be in town on Saturday between 10am and 2pm at the rainbow stage, giving away goody bags and encouraging people to download the Loyal Free App.

Anyone who has downloaded the app can then enter the competition to win a hamper filled with prizes from the town centre shops including a One For All Voucher worth £200, gifts from Tony & Guy, Energie Fitness, Kadoo, Tikis, Starbucks, M&S, The Entertainer, Gaffer and more.

Claire Hamilton, the council's chief executive, said: “It’s great to be able to welcome shoppers back to our town centres and we want to do all we can to support the businesses on our high streets.

"We know our residents want to support local businesses too, and we hope by having the LoyalFree app in place we can connect local businesses to customers and make our high streets thrive again.”
