Signs Express franchise supports community project

Signs Express, one of the leading signs and graphics franchises in the UK and Ireland, has announced that Signs Express (Lancaster) is supporting their local town of Morecambe in their bid to a share of the government-funded Portas Pilot project of £1m aimed at helping to support and grow the economies in towns and villages. According to the information provided, local businesses and community leaders as well as the general public have all come together to back a campaign for Morecambe to win the funding under the strapline ‘MoreCanBe Done’.

Signs Express (Lancaster) has offered financial support as well as their signage expertise to help promote the campaign. Large format full colour graphics have been applied in strategic locations across the town offering a dual purpose – covering unsightly vacant shop windows as well as encouraging community interaction and support for the initiative.

Owner of Signs Express (Lancaster), Thomas Somers said, “This initiative is vital for towns such as Morecambe and we were delighted to offer our assistance. Unfortunately Morecambe has seen a number of closures, especially retail, during the recession which has led to over 30% of retail space within the town being vacant. By adding large full colour imagery to shop windows backing the campaign we are not only adding a bright and attractive image to the high street but spreading the very important message of the importance this project has to the community.”

Established for over 20 years, Signs Express currently has more than 75 franchisees across the UK and Ireland. (kbp)
