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
We’re SO sorry to do this now!! We know it’s barely half way through August but we do need to start planning for Christmas and we hoped you’d be kind enough to give us some feedback on the Vegan section of the Christmas menu? Last year’s Festive Fayre went down a treat and we would really like to cater better for EVERYONE this year 😊 ** We didn’t mean honey, honey! Don’t worry, we’re on that one, just poor phrasing on my part! ... See MoreSee Less
We are very grateful and would like to say a huge thanks to Gradbach Mill and Farmhouse who have allowed us to move our Roaches sessions next week to their site.
The need to move the session comes as a result of the devastating recent fire at our Roaches nature reserve. Otherwise we would of had to cancel the sessions if we had not received this kind venue offer.
So if you want to come and join us for fun in the great outdoors, why not join us at Gradbach Mill next week!
We have Wildplay 10am-12 next Tuesday and Wildfamilies the same day in the afternoon 1-3pm and a second Wildfamilies next Thurday 2-4pm. Activities may include:bug hunting, scavenger hunts, natural crafts ...and much more!
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.
