After the success of our #localanuary posts, where we have been championing our fantastic local shops, we’ve signed Turriff up to the Totally Locally Fiver Fest.
What’s Fiver Fest you ask?
The Totally Locally Fiver Fest is a big celebration of Britain’s fantastic small businesses and shops, many run by families or individuals, but ALL contributing massively to the economy of the UK and the wellbeing of our towns. It comes from the message about the impact that spending £5 in local businesses has on our local economy.
This year Fiver Fest takes part 15 – 29 February.
Businesses taking part put on special £5 offers over 2 weeks, to show the diversity and value of what they sell, and to say thank you to the communities that support them.
We’re going to facilitate Fiver Fest, distributing posters to any of our independent shops who want to join in, keeping a track of who is taking part and most importantly promoting Fiver Fest and local businesses.
Fiver Fest is for the small independent family businesses, not for the big chains with multiple outlets. Fiver Fest is about levelling the playing field between our independents and our national chains.
If you are a local business and want to take part, we will have a sign-up page for you to register, just so we can see who is taking part, get posters & stuff to you, promote you, promote Turriff and hopefully do something good for Turriff.
