BUY LOCAL in and around Sudbury Part 3
9th April 2019
... Comments

Last month, I dedicated 2 weeks to getting out and about locally with my Buy Local Sticker. It’s my 5th year owning thebestof Sudbury and what better way to give back and thank everyone for their support, than to give a bit of free promotion and remind the good people of the area what wonderful independent business we have on our own downsteps; the businesses run by people who also give up their Sunday to coach the local football club, or volunteer at a local charity, are on their school’s PTA or parish council. Individuals who contribute to their local economy and that’s what it’s all about.. Keeping the pound in and around the Sudbury area.

So, who are now the proud owners of thebestof Sudbury Buy Local Stickers?
