I spent some time chatting with my friend Amy Harbour, who was one of the very first people to take Totally Locally to heart.

Back in 2010, Amy ran a Haberdashery(!) in Hebden Bridge. I walked into the shop with this little idea that I thought no one would understand, and she got it straight away. And from there she galvanised the town to make big changes. We’ve stayed friends ever since.

Here we sit with a glass of wine in her garden (you’ll hear the birds and the cat!) and discuss the beginnings, what worked and what didn’t and how Totally Locally grew from tiny beginnings.
