Love Local Day

To celebrate our local high streets, markets and dedicated businesses who work hard to source and supply convenience with fresh produce, gifts and services on our doorstep we want to spread the love to them this Valentine’s Day.

We feel they should have the recognition they deserve – so we are claiming Valentine’s Day as  the day for us all to appreciate local businesses and where we live and work! We are renaming the 14th February Love Local Day

How can you join in? You can join in by:

- Shopping local for your loved one this Valentine’s Day
You can make your high street or market the first stop when choosing a unique Valentine’s card or gift. You can take your special person for a meal at a local restaurant or book a treat such as a manicure, facial or massage.

- Helping us raise awareness by sharing the local love on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Look out for our competition on Facebook to win £50 ShopAppy Vouchers - all you have to do is share a pic of your favourite local spot and tag the person you would like to share £50 shopappy vouchers with. Winners will be chosen at random on #lovelocalday 14th February.

- Telling your favourite shop or business how much you love them Just nominate your favourite business - We will select the winning nomination and send them a bouquet of flowers from a local independent florist of course! And don't worry if a florist wins, we have an alternative gift!!

We’re doing our bit too

Along with giving away lovely prizes we’ll be surprising some of our most loved business owners with Valentine cards and messages on the day. We’ll be promoting #LoveLocalDay on social media and in the media and we’re getting the businesses involved as well as providing posters to help them share the love.

Spread the love. If you appreciate your local shops and businesses get on social media and tell all your friends to love local on 14th February by using #LoveLocalDay but most of all, get out there and support local businesses near you.
