Shop Local – support your Town Centre safely and tell us about your favourite businesses

Shop Local – support your Town Centre safely and tell us about your favourite businesses

Dursley Town Council are supporting a new campaign by Stroud District Council by getting behind shops and businesses with its Shop Local campaign, as lockdown eases.

The Shop Local campaign is simple - we want shoppers to be able to shop and eat safely, and businesses to trade profitably and safely, to help restart the local economy.

The council is calling on shoppers to tag their favourite stores and traders to tell us how they are getting on, using #ShopLocal or #ShopDursley (for example) on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, and sharing council posts.

"Together we can help our town centres thrive again," said Stroud District Council Leader and Dursley Councillor Doina Cornell. "It's really important that we shop and trade safely, and support businesses which are the lifeblood of the communities we live and work in.

"If you have a favourite shop or eating out spot, or know of a business going the extra mile, do let us know about it on our social media channels."

The campaign is run by Stroud District Council and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Government's Reopening of High Streets Fund.
