The former GBBO winner spoke with Nationwide’s Mandy Beech about the importance of reviving Britain’s high streets.
Candice Brown triumphed in the 2016 season of BBC’s Great British Bake Off, taking home the trophy and the title of Britain’s best baker. Since her win, she has opened a pub in Eversholt, and is now a proud business-owner and passionate supporter of local business and high streets. As part of Nationwide’s campaign to help local communities thrive by keeping branches open across the country, Candice spoke with the building society’s Branch Network Director Mandy Beech MBA about the crucial role that high streets play in our communities, appearing in a video hosted on the Nationwide Facebook page.
Speaking about the campaign, Mandy Beech said: “At a time when many banks have adopted large-scale closure programmes, we believe more must be done to help local communities thrive. But we cannot do it alone. It is only by businesses and local people mutually working together that we can make a real difference to the future of our high streets.”
“Candice was the perfect talent to take part iin this campaign. Owning her own pub in Eversholt meant that she knew exactly what her customers would look for in a great pub, and why we should be reviving the high street.”Natasha Hill, Head of Talent
