Help the environment: Shopping at our local bakers, green grocers or butchers is one of the simplest and most effective ways we can reduce our carbon footprint. Local businesses are more likely to source their produce locally, thereby reducing food miles. If you are looking to cut your carbon, why not head to our dedicated web pages.

Our town centre businesses and communities are at the heart of at the heart of this evolution and spending your pound locally means you can be too.
