St Albans-based ABA Market Research is calling on city residents to have their say on shopping at major high-street stores. Experts in retail research, ABA is looking for people to join their panels and voice their opinions on everything from retailers’ national advertising campaigns to the window displays in the local branch. So, do you think your opinions could help them to improve what the big hitters in the retail world sell in their shops and how they do it? Anyone that is interested in joining a panel will either be paid in cash or entered into a cash prize draw. Just register online at www.abapanel.co.uk, or pop in to see ABA on its ‘Cashback for Comments’ open day, on Wednesday 15 July, and pick up some information about being a panellist. ABA is right next door to The Peahen on London Road. Refreshments will be available along with the chance to see what some of the existing panellists get out of participating. It only takes a couple of minutes to register and panellists are free to turn down any involvement that isn’t convenient to them.

The Alban Arena is a venue with a rich history of welcoming touring acts, some of which have gone on to world-wide fame - such as Dire Straits, who played there in 1978. I saw the legendary Rory Gallagher there in 1988, more recently The Waterboys and The Gorillaz have graced the stage. It is maybe a sign of the times that more tribute bands than original artists perform there these days. So when two of the UKs most respected musical artists were coming to the Alban Arena it was likely to be an evening not to be missed!
