Businesses club together to save High Street

Almost 50 businesses from Lee-On-the-Solent in Hampshire have come together to revitalise the Lee Business Association (LBA) pushing the brand to the forefront of the local community. The LBA was created by like minded businesses to ensure their seaside village continued to draw visitors and to keep local businesses thriving.


Jonathan Moore, Chair of the Lee Business Association, said: “We are so proud of our village and we are determined to keep our High Street and community spirit alive. This month we have launched our new website which gives visitors information about our location, beaches and a directory of local businesses. Our members are seeing great benefits from working together to promote Lee and we hope this reflects in visitor numbers once travel restrictions have eased.


“There are so many different businesses in this area which employ and support local people. Our historic High Street is a hub of activity and lifeline to many people who use it for all their shopping. During the current COVID crisis the High Street took on a new challenge and stepped up to offer online shopping to compete with the big companies such as Amazon and online supermarkets. Our village really is something special and we want to share that with as many visitors as possible.”


The new website is www.leeonthesolent.uk. Local businesses can join the listing for free or can pay to become a full member for an enhanced listing and partnership benefits.
