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.

At the side of the stage under a spotlight was a poignant reminder of the musician who had died in St Albans 12 months earlier – his bass guitar and hat.
