Are you frustrated – or perhaps a little sad – at the number of local high street shops and services closing down each month.
Buy Local Week 3rd – 9th June is a campaign supported by The Best of Barnet Borough, which champions recommended independent businesses in the borough for the benefit of residents and businesses alike.
The core element of the campaign is to get people to do more for the area – a simple sticker in a window or car is one way but just changing how we spend can make a huge difference to the local economy.
The campaign has the full support of Andy Coleman – The Best of Barnet Borough champion …
“We have distinctive and wonderful independent shops and businesses in our area, but we shouldn’t take them for granted. ‘Buy Local’ reminds us that they need the support both of residents and local policy makers.
We need to learn from other areas that have bucked the trend of empty shops and declining parades. With everyone committed to supporting local business, combined with a loyal and active community, we can do the same.
High streets without a variety of shops and services lack life, vibrancy and that all-important pint of milk!”
We’d love your support and not only can you help your neighbourhood’s businesses, you can win too.
Simply pledge your support at www.thebestof.co.uk/local/barnet-borough/buylocal during Buy Local week 3rd – 9th June, and you will be entered into our daily prize draw.

What else can you do?
