Just a Card

Just a Card

The Dursley Town shops, businesses and traders are taking part in a campaign to support local independent businesses.

The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.

The campaign came about when Artist & Designer Sarah Hamilton saw the quote "If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought 'just a card' we'd still be open" by store keepers who'd recently closed their gallery. This prompted a call to action! More »

Jayne Perrett and Eve Squire are photographed at the Dursley launch of the campaign. » Less
