Shop Local - Buy Local

This information applies to Adur, but shopping and buying locally in Worthing also helps!

Shop Local, Buy Local

Adur Council is backing a campaign to help local shops, cafes, restaurants and businesses.

The council is working with local businesses to promote the 'Shop Local, Buy Local' message and attract more customers to our towns and villages.

Using your local shops when you go shopping is the way to keep our town centres alive and thriving.

If you do not usually shop local, now might be the time to give it a try. Local shops are often good for finding unusual gifts or maybe something new and different for the home.

Southwick, Shoreham and Lancing shops offer a excellent choice and restaurants offer a wide variety of wonderful meals. Going local is good for the environment too - you will be helping to cut carbon footprint.

Look out over the coming months for the special initiatives aimed at encouraging you to 'Shop Local - Buy Local'.

Also, look out for the 'Shop Local - Buy Local' signs in windows to see which local shops and businesses are supporting this scheme.
