    Really good to see Hollyrox move into a bricks-and-mortar store. When anyone asks “what happened to the Portas money? “this is one of the answers. A small part of it was used on bursaries to help enterprising young people get on to the market and Holly and Roxanne are not the first to transfer to a fully fledged shop. Good luck to them. The Portas cash was only £80k, which isn’t that much, and I think we are spending it wisely. Particularly pleased with the community shop which is pretty much packed out with clubs and societies holding their meetings in the town centre now and the Dartford Creative arts programme which made the high street really colourful last Autumn. Much more to come.
