If every person in the Leek 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 £4.1 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?
Totally Locally Leek is a traditional and vibrant market town on the edge of the Peak District. With a wealth of independent shops, cafes and pubs with regular weekly markets and weekend speciality markets including the award winning Sunday Supplement held on the first day of the month
***Opportunity for Artist/ Designer/Maker***
Are you an Artist/ Designer/ Maker looking to become part of an indie business? Gallery Twenty opened in October last year and after a successful start we are looking to expand our numbers by offering an exciting opportunity to a couple of local artists/designers/makers to join our business in Getliffe’s Yard in Leek.
We are all local artists, designers and makers who came together with a vision to open a collectively run gallery/shop where we can showcase and sell our original hand-made work. The gallery is run with each member having equal decision-making, opportunities and responsibilities.
Your work needs to be unique, of a high standard and complimentary to our existing art works. Established and also graduating artists, designers and makers will be considered but flexibility to work on a rota within the gallery and help with running the business is key.
For more information or to apply to join, please email 5 images of your work and a brief description about yourself, including any links to your social media/webpage to firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date March 31st

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.
