Saltaire is close to our hearts at Totally Locally HQ, it’s just up the road from where we started our campaign and it’s one of Chris’s favourite places in the world! If you haven’t ever been and are remotely nearby, we highly recommend visiting this World Heritage site!

So it brought a smile to our faces to see that Totally Locally was launching here on Saltaire Heritage weekend. A number of free events were happening in the town including historical walks, exhibitions, stalls and canal boat trips.

Organiser David Ford: “The focus of the Totally Locally event will be to celebrate Saltaire’s independent shops and businesses.
Saltaire’s World Heritage Status has made it a tourist hot spot for many years, and we have a great community feel that we want to build on.”

The team had heaps of shopping bags printed and some great banners showing the town’s five-pound message, that if every adult spent just £5 a week with independents, this would equate to £1.5million a year additionally going into the local economy.
