#ShopLocal Dates for your Diary.

#ShopLocal Dates for your Diary.
Wednesfield North City Councillors are again going to organise a set of #ShopLocal campaigns in our Ward, aimed at increasing footfall to Local Shops and stores. Boosting our very local economy, reducing the carbon footprint of residents. Helping to reduce the climate crisis. Plus, just helping those local small businesses we all rely on during the course of the year. Plus a real effort is to be made to have fun!

We have been doing #ShopLocal for a couple of years now. It works…!

This year 2020 – We will have our great #Shoplocal days on
• Saturday the 18th April
• Friday 3rd July -Coinciding with Wednesfield in Bloom Judging Day
• Saturday 4th July Partnered with the #Stuff4Steph Funday.’
• Saturday the 12th December in the run up to Christmas!

Will all those local shops who will be taking part in all these events, place the dates in your diary’s, and let me have your comments or ideas. Please everyone share the article. Let’s get some buy in!

We will be working with The Hub at Ashmore Park and Wednesfield in Bloom with all these events, and I want to thank Gemma Ballinger and James Clarke for their support for #ShopLocal and for volunteering their own personal time to this, as well as the Ashmore Park Community Association who already do so much for our community.

We have a great community. We look as though we are going to have a great year in 2020!
