Following on from its #lovelivelocal winter campaign last year Denbighshire County Council says it wants to continue its support for Denbighshire businesses for winter 2021-22.
It is therefore launching a new campaign which aims to raise awareness among Denbighshire residents and visitors of the importance of supporting local businesses and services so that the local economy can thrive through the winter months.
Another aim is to highlight how acting sustainably can help tackle climate crisis and that shopping more on local high streets is one way to make a difference and reduce our carbon footprint.
The council is reaching out to businesses who would like to be featured in the campaign.
It says it particularly wants to hear from:
o Food & drink – local producers/outlets who offer locally sourced food, use recycled packaging, hospitality sector recruiting local people etc
o Sustainable/environmental friendly gifts – this could include second hand, businesses who upcycle.
o Local Welsh gifts/products
o Wreaths/flowers for Christmas – highlight those that source local
o Social enterprises across Denbighshire
o Locally grown Christmas trees
o Local arts & crafts
o Community shops
o Businesses using a ‘bit of Welsh language’
The campaign will be launched on October 18 and will run until the middle of January to cover the Christmas period and beyond.
The council says: "We are looking for a range of businesses including those who operate across the county therefore we may not be able to feature every business who responds.
"If you are interested email firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can telephone us on 01824 706072/ 01824 706915 if you would like to get involved."
