Cheltenham Chamber Hot Topic: Regent Arcade manager Scott Lahive and Cheltenham BID's Phil Jordan reflects on the reopening of Cheltenham

This is actually two videos. Both were shot just as Cheltenham town centre's retail and public houses were reopening and both seem to offer even more incite into where we were and where we are now for the few days that have passed since.

Interviewing ably handled, as ever, by Dan Harris, on behalf of Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce, the manager of Cheltenham's premier shopping centre, Scott Lahive, reflects frankly on some of the challenges facing retail and the town - many of which we now know appear here to stay.

And the second video, shot just as the town's public houses were preparing to open, sees Phil Jordan, owner of the popular COCO and Under the Prom night clubs, deputy chairman of Cheltenham BID (business improvement district) and chairman of Nightsafe, looking forward.
