We have the new footfall figures for week 28 and they make very interesting reading. The reporting has changed so we do not receive the comparison we used to get against UK and West-Country. However an email from Springboard does give us some clues.
When you compare these national figures with Dartmouth then we are faring quite well so far.
So week on week our increase of 85% is well above the UK average of 10.6% and up to 16.5% where hospitality businesses are located.
Also they state that footfall is over 50% down on last year on average whereas ours is only a quarter down on last year. Having said that our footfall has been steadily declining since 2010 with an upturn beginning over the last year or so. However we should be encouraged by our progress so far.
