Idea by Rachel F with added Baron M twist: Let's give young people and other creative individuals a chance to run a pop-up shop in the 27 empty shops in town for a minimum of a week with a sensible deal being struck with the landlords. They could be filled with art, performance, quirky business, crafts and anything else that might surprise or amuse. This could tie in with the new WE brand for Weymouth. WE help, WE create, WE develop, WE learn, WE inspire and so on. If you want to harness the power of Social Media then letting young people have a real chance will give them the incentive to get involved.
