MORE THAN A SHOP LOCAL CAMPAIGN
Totally Locally - More Than A Shop Local Campaign
If every person in the UK spent just £5 per week in their local independent shops, instead of online or at the big supermarkets, it would be worth an extra £ 1.6 billion a year going into the local economy. Which means more jobs, better facilities & a nicer place for us all to live. Makes you think doesn’t it?
We are the Force. We are Strong. We Are Totally Locally HQ…… oh ok, we’re just trying to make our high street a bit better with cool stuff.

We as Totally Locally were contacted by Oxfam to see if we as a group will support their campaign to make big corporations pay their fair share of tax. It's been a long standing view of ours that small businesses prop up these big organisations, purely because they have the money to pay experts to get round every loophole going. So we have lent the Totally Locally name to this campaign.

Oxfam are involved, because they see the lack of investment to our health service, our social care and well being could be massively impacted if people pay their fair share of tax. This includes other countries as well.

Oxfam need to get 1000 signatures to start a debate with the chancellor. It would be great if you follow the link, sign the petition and share amongst all your business friend contacts, and even on your social media pages.

Again its all about creating a level playing field - we pay tax so should the big multi nationals.
the petition link is here:
actions.oxfam.org/great-britain/tax-sme/petition/

Oxfam say: "When companies don’t pay their fair share of tax, it hits the world’s poorest people the hardest – depriving their governments of money that could be spent on vital services like hospitals, schools and clean water. Without these, people in developing countries simply don’t have a fair chance of overcoming poverty. Together we can do something about it."

Hebden Bridge is where Totally locally is based. So it would be criminal if we didn't share this great little film about 2 blokes who decided to build a business making wonderful trousers. Hebden Bridge used to be called Trouser Town many years ago, as it made thousands of pairs a week. . This is the last remaining factory. ... See MoreSee Less

A year ago we went to the pub and started a trouser company. We now have sold over 2000 trousers, all made in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire. It used to be called Trouser Town. We want to keep it that way.

Want an achievable, feasible New Year's resolution that makes a difference? Ta-Dah! Make an effort to use the great #independent shops in Teddington (when possible) They keep the town an interesting place to live and support our local community. Buy flowers from the florist (not the supermarket) meat from the butchers (not the supermarket) cards from the card / gift shop (not the supermarket) bread & cakes from the bakery (not the supermarket) coffee from an independent cafe not a bland, old chain .... Just £5 p/week in an #independent makes a difference to the local economy.

What is Totally Locally? Totally Locally is an award-winning social enterprise and shop local movement. We support independent retailers with a free branding and marketing campaign for their town. Teams of volunteers use the campaign to promote the value of local shopping, celebrate their high street, create community events, and ultimately lift their local economy. Totally Locally is more than a shop local campaign, it’s about working together to lift a whole town. Since we put the Town Kit online in November 2012, Totally Locally has gone crazy. It’s in over 50 towns in the UK and many in Australia and New Zealand, with loads more telling us they are starting it in their town. It’s about people power. Totally locally has inspired huge local markets (one which included beach huts placed though a town!) , co working, Pop Up shops, Sunday openings in towns where it never happened, award winning events, produce swaps and much more. It’s up to you. And when people do something great we ask that they share the knowledge and give it away to all the other towns. That way we all thrive.
