Air Ambulance Lands in Banbury High Street
The prime retail unit, recently purchased by Montrose Property Company Limited, together with the next door White Stuff unit, is situated within the pretty pedestrianised part of the High Street opposite Banbury’s bandstand and is part of a Grade II listed property. The unit is situated next door to Coventry Building Society and has, amongst others, Café Nero, Barclays Bank, Harrold Opticians and WH Smith close by.
Montrose are in the process of carrying out works to the ground floor to meet the Air Ambulances requirements and are also looking to develop the upper floors to residential accommodation.
Chris White, Managing Director of White Commercial Surveyors, says “This is an excellent addition to Banbury and the charity is well supported by many individuals within the region. This provides the Children’s Air Ambulance with a public face to the local community.”
Kerry Martin, new shops development manager for the Children’s Air Ambulance, says: “We are thrilled to be able to open one of our award-winning boutique style shops in Banbury. Our charity relies entirely on donations to be able to keep hope alive for babies and children who need lifesaving hospital transfers, so our local communities are incredibly important to us.”
