Now the footfall figures start to look interesting! You can see from these figures that there has been a big rise in footfall in Dartmouth compared to last year. However lets consider some of the reasons for this. Firstly Easter was later last year in week 15 so this is not a direct comparison. Also we were in lockdown at this stage of the year so again this distorts the result, but the main distortion is the fact that we are dealing with low absolute numbers so the percentage will show a big variance. eg we may have had only 10 visitors last year so 20 this year will show the result you see of +199%.
Lets hope it is a real trend, but we must wait a few more weeks to see if this is sustained.
