Melanie Williams, Chief Executive of HWBIDCo, said: ‘We’ve so much planned for the Summer in High Wycombe, including 10+ individual events days, there’ll be no time for sitting and enjoying the sunshine…haha! Seriously though, it’s an amazing feeling to be able to properly welcome the community back into the heart of the town centre, and this August is set to be busy.
With increasingly more alfresco dining venues, ice cream parlours and cafes, there’s no excuse not to make a day of it, and we can’t wait to share this season with Staycationers and shoppers…‘
