The Totally Locally Fiver Fest is a big celebration of Britain’s independent small businesses and shops, many of which are run by families or individuals, but ALL contributing massively to the economy of the UK and the well-being of our towns.
As part of the Totally Locally Fiver Fest celebration, Ashbourne's Independent Businesses pulled together to take part in Ashbourne's first ever Fiver Fest!
Ashbourne, along with many other Towns and High Streets across the country, took part by putting on special £5 offers throughout the week (5th October - 12 October 2019). This is to showcase 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.
There were over thirty shops in Ashbourne that took part and we ourselves had over twenty over on! Lots of our Makers wanted to get involved and we even had items that were specifically made for the event.
Watch this space for next years!
