Buy Local to build a better district economy

Edition: Winter 2021

Did you know that every time you ‘Buy Local’ you are supporting a whole network of local people and businesses behind the scenes?

Choosing to spend your money at a local bakers, farm shop or local crafts outlet are all ways to support a circular economy, helping to keep local jobs for local people.

Residents across the Horsham  District are being encouraged to  think local and buy local where they possibly can in an effort to support local businesses.

A new Buy Local campaign developed by the Council is supporting local businesses who have continued to work tirelessly throughout the lockdown to deliver vital services.

Shopping is no longer just about going to the shops, it is about showing support for our communities.

Willie Hamilton, Chair of Horsham Business Improvement District

Businesses are being offered a variety of marketing materials and business support to increase both footfall and online trade across the District.

The campaign highlights how local traders have adapted to lockdown situations by supporting public health guidelines with enhanced safety measures in place.

For more information go to the Buy Local page on the Horsham District Council website.
