Crickhowell Goes Totally Locally…for a £1.4 Million Boost – Totally Locally, the award-winning shop local campaign, will launch in Crickhowell on 26th October.
Crickhowell is the latest of many towns across the UK to take up the Totally Locally campaign. This free initiative supports the towns businesses to show the value of local shopping and its benefits for the local economy. Many of the shops, businesses and stalls will have special offers – highlighting Totally Locally’s message that if everyone in Crickhowell` spent just £5 a week in local independent shops instead of at the supermarket or online, it would bring an extra £1.4 million into the town’s economy every year!
“This is a chance for locals to discover Crickhowell’s great shops and businesses, and the real difference they make to our town,” said Totally Locally organiser, Emma Corfield-Walters. ‘We’re very lucky here to not have any empty shops and by highlighting the importance of our independent businesses and increasing the vibrancy of the town centre we hope that this trend will continue’
We currently have the backing of the National Parks and funding from Rural Alliances to get this project off the ground. We hope to put together a series of sustainable events that all of Crickhowell’ businesses and our local community can take part in.
