The Scotland Loves Local campaign is a national initiative designed to encourage all those who live in Scotland to think local first and support their high streets safely and in line with public health guidelines. The outbreak of Coronavirus has caused significant challenges for our town centres, high streets and local businesses who have lost out on vital trade, yet many of them have gone to enormous lengths to support the most vulnerable people in our communities.
Our small businesses, whether a pub, cafe, tailor, butcher or grocery shop, are the lifeblood of our Scottish economy. They take risks everyday to create jobs and prosperity to maintain our way of life. Now is the time to support them to get back on their feet. Now is the time to be there for them. Now is the time to think local first.
Building on the Scotland Loves Local campaign, the 'Linlithgow Loves Local' initiative, with the support of Fiona Hyslop MSP, obtained funding to help local businesses ensure it was safe for them and the community to shop local. As the economy gradually opened up following the pandemic, One Linlithgow through the 'Linlithgow Loves Local' campaign were able to offer local businesses safety screens, safe distance markers and PPE kits.
Promoting the Linlithgow Loves Local campaign, banners and posters are prominently displayed throughout town via lamp post banners, lamp post and bollard sleeves, bunting and posters.
