It's hoped ?300,000 worth of investment will help to boost

:00:08.:00:11.

East Riding's high streets and lead to the creation of jobs.

:00:12.:00:16.

The council wants local people to think of projects that could

:00:17.:00:19.

revitalise town centres, and says the best ideas will be

:00:20.:00:21.

The Great British High Street hasn't been quite so great in recent years.

:00:22.:00:31.

There's been lots in our area to try and get shoppers back. Now East

:00:32.:00:34.

Riding Council is offering grants to groups with ideas to improve town

:00:35.:00:38.

It might take a lick of paint, it might take some flowers, but at the

:00:39.:00:53.

end, we want to see a vibrant high Street in our towns, and we want to

:00:54.:00:56.

create jobs. The council says it's been inspired

:00:57.:01:01.

in part by the success of this pop shop in Bridlington which was paid

:01:02.:01:04.

for by a Government grant. It allows people to showcase businesses for a

highstreet but that rises to 29% for shopping centres and 37% in retail

parks. Gainsborough is another town in our area that's invested to bring

:01:28.:01:32.

in more shoppers. Half a million pounds has been spent on roads and

:01:33.:01:40.

paths to make the city centre more accessible and there have been some

:01:41.:01:43.

promising results. There are still some vacancies, so

:01:44.:02:00.

we cannot afford to be complacent. The footfall figures, which we

:02:01.:02:05.

monitor, are encouraging. It looks as though we are achieving what we

:02:06.:02:08.

want to, which is to increase visitors and shoppers to come into

the purchase of the airstrip, at this RAF base at Kirton in Lindsey.

:02:52.:02:56.

The public were invited to an open day at the base today,
