Feedback from October 2019 FiverFest

TOTALLY LOCALLY SEATON

We had a fantastic fiver fest in Seaton, there was a real buzz around town and everyone was talking about it! In the end 61 businesses all with great offers!

We’re up for making February Bigger and better now that we have more time! 

Town Centre Champions – Bedford

A big thank you to the 110 businesses in Bedford who took part in the second national FiverFest.

Another big thank you to every one of us who spent our fivers during #fiverfest week and made it such a huge success.

Roll on February 2020 where we will see the first fortnight long FiverFest event!

BOLSOVER

In Bolsover…FIVER FEST was UNBELIEVABLE……the community really got behind us……I set up Bolsover FiverFest page….people were sharing and spreading the word, sending pics of their purchases and leaving positive comments & reviews about the shops and business in town.

This has brought our town TOGETHER!

ASHTON-UNDER-LYNE

48 businesses took part in Ashton-u-Lyne compared with 20 last time. FiverFest captured a lot of interest and it brought a lot of businesses together. Lots asking can we do it again….yes we are! My aim for Feb will be 60 businesses.

 Roll on February! We’re ready!

We love hearing the success stories from the first #fiverfestleighonsea ⭐️ thanks for sharing  @cjvinten What a huge success this week has been so far, so many locals popping out and seeing what their little town offers. We’ve had so many ladies popping in to have their rings cleaned and we hear “ooo I’ve never been in here before” – We may have doorbell access but we aren’t dragons behind the door, we promise 🤣

The Totally Locally Fiver Fest is a big celebration of Britain’s fantastic small businesses and shops, many run by families or individuals, but ALL contributing massively to the economy of the UK and the wellbeing of our towns.

Towns and High Streets taking part put on special £5 offers over 1 week, to show the diversity and value of what they sell, and to say thank you to the communities that support them.

It comes from the (now famous) Totally Locally £5 message showing the huge impact of people spending just £5 per week in their local independent shops can have on our High Streets.

PLEASE NOTE: THE FIVER FEST IS BY INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES ONLY – 

THOSE WHO CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY INTO THE LOCAL ECONOMY OF THEIR TOWN. IT DOESNT INCLUDE BIG CHAIN STORES, SUPERMARKETS OR MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES. BECAUSE…….

FIVER FEST NEWS

CLICK  TO FIND OUT A LITTLE ABOUT THE £5 CONCEPT & FIVER FESTS>>

The Whole Totally Locally Concept runs on that simple & guilt free message – spend a fiver a week in your town, it helps your high street thrive and makes the place you live that little bit better.

Best of all you get the added bonus of connecting with your community, and supporting all those other local businesses that are all interconnected (the average independent business has 12 local suppliers, so each time you spend locally you support those other businesses too). Nice!

If you like Fiver Fest and think ‘my High Street could benefit from some of this totally locally action’ why not look at joining the wider Totally Locally Campaign? 

It’s a free marketing & branding kit with loads of ‘How To Do a…’ type articles, a peer to peer group where people from all over the world chat and offer advice. It tells you how to get people working together and how to include everyone, whilst p••••ing off no one (not easy with small businesses!). 

It’s in over 50 towns worldwide already, so it must do something right!  Just grab a brew, click here and browse!>>

To find out what offers are on in your town or high street, check out your local press, or social media. Look for #fiverfest or #totallylocally or #totallylocallyyourtownname   Most towns have Facebook too.

We want your Fiver Stories – Let us know how Fiver Fest has affected your town, what great offers you’ve seen or even if you’ve just got to meet some new people.

This is a social thing – we want it to be a lot more than just selling things for £5. It’s about community and businesses supporting each other, whilst saying thank you to people who support local independent businesses.
