A shop owner in Windsor is enjoying the sweet sound of success after she won a pair of designer headphones in a prize draw run by the Windsor 2030 steering group.
Fiona Baderman, who co-owns Prontaprint in St Leonards Road, won the Bang and Olufsen headphones after she took part in a survey asking businesses and residents for their opinions on the business planning priorities for Windsor town centre.
More than 250 people participated in the Windsor 2030 survey, which was also held to give residents a say in what should be included in Windsor’s Neighbourhood Plan for Businesses.
The survey revealed that residents ranked the preservation of the town’s heritage as a key priority in any future development.
Phil McMichael, manager of Bang and Olufsen and chairman of the Windsor District Chamber of Commerce, added: “We need to focus on developing the town in terms of planning and give the St Leonards area more focus to create an independent village.”
Prize winner Fiona Baderman said she was glad St Leonards Road was being given attention in future town planning decisions.
“I think we feel slightly cut off at this end so it would be great if we could get a bit more priority,” she added.
Paul Roach, Windsor and Eton town manager said the survey had provided a great opportunity for residents and businesses to have their say on planning objectives.
“It’s been a great response and we thank Bang and Olufsen for providing the prize.
“We’re really glad that a local business has won,” he said.
