Totally Locally is about opening your eyes to the great independent shops and businesses in Crickhowell. Itís here to encourage you to turn into the door of that shop you walk past every day. Go on, give it a try Ė thereís a good chance youíll want to go back. Itís about supporting your local growers, producers and services: be it furniture makers, farmers, accountants or bakers.
Totally Locally is about people. Great people. People who care about what they do, what they grow, what they make. And people like you who care about what they buy and where they shop. Itís about a collective responsibility to support our local businesses. Because when we do our towns thrive.
And that’s about it really!
Totally Locally Crickhowell developed in 2013 from Crickhowell & Black Mountain Tourism Group (CBMT) wanting to collectively do something to boost the local economy and promote our independent shops and businesses. Weíre very lucky to not have any empty shops on our High Street, and with the help of our community and visitors, we plan to keep it that way! Itís becoming increasingly unusual for a small town to have so many independent, family run businesses; Crickhowell is a very special place. When we heard about Totally Locally we knew it would work here.
With support from Rural Alliances, CRiC, CBMT and lots of enthusiasm from local business owners, Totally Locally Crickhowell launched in October 2013.
