A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported the Forres Business Association at the Town Hall as part of Moray Business Week.
To gauge opinion on Forres and its business community and potential, we developed a questionnaire and the feedback has been hugely helpful.
The document posed questions about the town’s strengths and weaknesses, what Forres and the businesses should be doing to develop the area and what people perceive to be the threats.
Food for thought
One thing was clear – people love Forres and they are passionate about the community feel. However, the responses have given the FBA food for thought. One item which popped up not just on the questionnaire but through talking to people who visited the event was about the need for collaborative space. There is also a desire to make Forres more of a destination and to increase footfall on the High Street, and how we go about retaining young people and not losing them to the central belt. The committee is now having a look at some of the ideas posed and how we can take them forward in 2018.
