Think local, shop local this festive season - Letter to the Editor

As we prepare to celebrate Christmas I ask everyone to think local and shop local this festive season.

Small businesses are a major employment sector for our local area, providing not only jobs but an important input to the local economy.

Shopping locally creates jobs for our friends, our neighbours and our youth, so next time you are deciding where to shop, please look local first.

Local businesses not only offer great services and products, they also give vital sponsorship to our community sporting clubs, groups and schools.

The festive season brings with it an array of shopping needs and I encourage everyone to shop locally to support our local traders.
