Shop Local Month

This morning, I was delighted to see new planters being installed in West Road. This has been made possible following the successful awarding of a £2,500 grant to the West Road Community & Traders Association (WRCTA) from the Community Development Foundation.

Along with my colleague Cllr Hadley, we were only happy to assist the WRCTA in helping them with the application for the grant bid and also their application in becoming a Charitable Trust.

We also took the opportunity to launch the Shop Local Month which Shoebury Conservatives are promoting in conjunction with the WRCTA. Local shops are valuable to local communities and want to encourage residents to shop locally where possible.

From the 6th July-6th August, participating shops displaying the shop local symbol, will be giving customers a 5% discount when they present a voucher when purchasing goods. Over the next two weeks, residents in West Shoebury will be receiving the following letter informing them how they can participate.

Non West Shoebury residents can also participate by downloading a voucher here.
