Once home to shoe store Shuropody and Greggs, the empty unit is the latest shop frontage to get some TLC amid Our Union Street’s ongoing work to clean up the high street.

The store front has now been painted and and equipped with new signs designed by a local company.

The volunteer-led clean up events have breathed new life into the Granite Mile in hope of attracting new traders to fill a unit.

This is the fifth clean up event organised by Our Union Street with the next taking place on June 30.
