ABOUT TOTALLY LOCALLY
Totally Locally is something special.
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 the 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.

NATIONAL FIVER FEST
We run the very great FIVER FEST 3 times a year
The third Totally Locally National Fiver Fest took place on 15-29th February 2020
with over 100 towns taking part!
Over 2,500 independent businesses and the general public embraced the Totally Locally Message – spending just £5 per week in your local independent shops and businesses makes a huge difference to your town or High Street!
We are re-assessing dates for the next Fiver Fest, due to the Covid19 Lockdown. Stay tuned to find out more.
BEFORE YOU START…..
2 SIMPLE EXPLANATIONS OF HOW LOCAL ECONOMICS WORKS
– THE FOUNDATION OF ALL THAT IS ON THIS SITE!
BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER PLEASE READ THIS:
We have had lots of people ask if they can ‘just use your stuff for our own shop local campaign. We like your ideas, but we don’t want to do Totally Locally’. Then we get people who don’t even ask, just take, and pretend it was their idea.
We don’t allow this. We are a not-for-profit organisation. Nearly 100 towns have bought into Totally Locally – 100%. And if you start taking bits of it, it weakens everything for everyone, and it does them a dis-service. It works as a whole, not in bits.
Also we have worked nearly 10 years on this campaign. It works. It is valuable – to us and to the people who use it.
So we had to do this: All words, images, photography, graphics and concepts on this site, including campaigns, FiverFest (yes even the words) Town Kit, The £5 message –in fact everything on this site and that which is produced by us – are protected under International Copyright Law. If you try and get round it by doing say ‘Fiver Fest Friday’ – well in law that’s called passing off, and that is infringement too. If you copy or adapt (change it enough to look different and its your idea) anything you see us do, that’s infringement too.
YOU MAY NOT USE ANY OF THIS CONTENT unless it is specifically sanctioned by us or used in the way specifically determined on this site and in our Town Kit Manual.
You may apply for the Town Kit, Apply to join Fiver Fest. But you may NOT copy the idea and pretend you did it.
You can download the posters etc. on the FREE STUFF page, but you may NOT doctor them, remove names, add logos, or change colours or wording in any way whatsoever.
We take copyright infringement seriously. We will seek legal action over any breach of our copyright. This is a non profit campaign, if you steal things from here, you steal from the whole Totally Locally community. And they all get mad – believe us.
If this sounds harsh, it’s because people have ripped off our work and pretended they came up with the idea – often being paid for it. And we made them stop. For a more formal understanding visit our T&Cs page.
IN THE END – this is more than messages. There is a whole community working behind the scenes, helping and sharing things. Why not just join in, work with us and be part of something bigger. The UK’s biggest Grass-Roots High Street Campaign. It makes sense.
If you are in any doubts, or you want to discuss this, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Right,……… carry on…….
