The closure of Clinton Cards in Keynsham has left a very prime unit vacant in the High Street. I think the town has enough card shops to be honest - what would people like to see replace it?

    What we'd like to see and what we'll get are two very different matters. We'll probably get a pound shop/charity shop or maybe a tattoo parlour.

    There's as much chance of that as a Waitrose!

    What would a WH Smith provide that Church's doesn't?

    Space412: it's funny how often those sorts of shops are missed once they've gone!

    What a fantastic idea - you could try contacting the town council - they could probably point you in the right direction.

    Thankyou and congratulations for having a say in your community. All to often points are left unmade. Particularly whereKeynsham high street is concerned. It's an asset to the whole community and should be treated with the respect of that community. It should be nurtred and encouraged to flourish. Instead it seems stifled by the gigantism of super chains. A fantastic independent high street should be able to accommodate a healthy wholistic selection of enterprises of a veriety of sizes standing shoulder to shoulder. Embracing creativity, enterprise ad community equally. That's what I'm passionate about

    Good luck to you, if they can do it in Frome, there's no reason why we can't do it in Keynsham. Local people supporting local businesses should create a thriving High Street.

    Hi Lucy,

    If you look at the long blue box in the middle of the home page, you'll see a box called 'Discuss' on the left just under the "What's the buzz in Keynsham" headline. Or just write in the white box directly underneath it and press the "publish" button.

    Hope that helps
