MORE THAN A SHOP LOCAL CAMPAIGN

Totally Locally - More Than A Shop Local Campaign

If every person in the KNIGHTON  area spent just £5 per week in their local independent shops, instead of online or at the big supermarkets, it would be worth an extra £0.6 million 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?
Knighton is a small border town, mostly lying in Wales. It has a charming assortment of small independent shops, some delightful cafes and pubs, an impressive hotel, and a fortnightly Community Market.

Hello. Visiting Knighton and Griffin Lloyd shooting ground over Easter weekend and we are looking for somewhere to eat on Easter Sunday (evening) for a party of 6 people (including one child and a couple of teenagers). Looking for reasonably priced good pub food. Does anyone have any recommendations please for somewhere open on Easter Sunday evening?!!
Many thanks.

The Village Quire Concert 'Back to the Garden'

March 18, 2017, 7:30pm - March 18, 2017, 10:30pm

BACK TO THE GARDEN A concert presented by The Village Quire with Phil Smith. A new musical story of life and hope in the trenches of war-torn France during the Great War, from the letters of Corporal William Bevan, soldier and gardener. In peace time, he occupied the position of Head Gardener at Kinsham Court near Presteigne. Once at the front, Bevan corresponded with his employer, Sir John Stanhope Arkwright. Interwoven with Bevan's story are two other true accounts: Vincent Street, who fought and died on the Western Front, and William Anderton who for reasons of conscience would not fight at all. Much was changed by the Great War; the old order being swept away during the course of those four years. Can he ever get 'Back to the Garden'?

On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month Knighton has a community market. It is full of good things to eat, to use, to read and to give away as presents. Offa really enjoys his Saturday morning shop and he met lots of people he knew, so he stopped in the cafe for a drink and a chat after he had made his purchases. The next market is this Saturday 11th March, 9.30am - 12.30pm at Knighton Community Centre

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.
