A city daily has told its readers to “forget” Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as it backs a bid to get a high street recognised as the best in Great Britain.
Judges are currently in Norwich assessing the city’s bid, and the Evening News made the front page plea yesterday calling on readers to ‘vote Norwich’.
Urging them to forget Wednesday’s election, the newspaper issued a rallying cry that the High Street bid was “the only vote that matters”.
In support of the bid, the Evening News also produced 12,000 posters for readers, which can also be downloaded from its website.
Evening News editor David Powles said: “We’re delighted Norwich has been shortlisted for such an award and, as is shown with the Norwich Lanes, victory can make such a difference.
“We hope all our readers join us to get behind the hard-working staff and business owners.”
Bristol and Derby are the other two cities shortlisted for the prize.
