ABOUT TOTALLY LOCALLY
Totally Locally is something special. It’s more than a shop local campaign, it’s a philosophy.
It started out as a small idea in the North of England and has grown into a multi-award-winning worldwide movement. Groups of volunteers in towns and areas use our Town Kit, following guidelines and using templates and a full event strategy, and use it to make their town a stronger, more vibrant & resilient place. And all we ask in return in that if they come up with a new idea, it is shared with everyone else.
There is now a network of Totally Locally Towns across the world, sharing ideas, working together and making a difference to their independent businesses.
It works. It has been proven from Yorkshire to London to New Zealand. A new vibrancy, a spirit of cooperation, and a better Independent High Street.
WE WROTE A BOOK!
The best way to find about us is with a nice cuppa and a book so if you want to know more, may we recommend “The Economics of Being Nice” which is now for sale in our shop
2 years in the writing, this is a guide to our Town Kit – which includes all the materials, methodology and step-by-step guides to allow you to start Totally Locally in your town, or to inspire you to start your own campaign. It also shares inspirational stories from people who have used it to make a big difference to their high streets, and how they went on to do other incredible things on the back of it. Packed with 230 pages of ideas, stories, photos, how-to-dos and big inspiration from people we’ve met through the decade of running Totally Locally.
