I was on the interweb today looking for some sort of society or action/awareness group which speaks out for civic improvement or protection of the traditional British hight street.
There’s usually a national society of *fill this space* for just about everything. I didn’t find anything but I will keep looking. I just wonder if anyone is campaigning against companies like Starbucks – not just because of an anti-globalisation feeling, but for reasons of protecting our high streets and town-centre spaces from becoming one big generic strip of chain outlets found repeated everywhere.
I think as you walk down the street where you live it shouldn’t feel like you’re in a Scoobie-Doo cartoon.
