Fiona Hyslop backs One Linlithgow Campaign

Fiona Hyslop MSP, Cabinet Secretary for the Economy and MSP for Linlithgow is helping to spread the word about our 'Linlithgow Loves Local' campaign, aimed at encouraging people to 'shop local', helping independent businesses thrive throughout a most difficult year.

One Linlithgow once again secured Scottish Government funding to put a local twist on the nationwide 'Scotland Loves Local' campaign.

We have been all over town putting up 'Linlithgow Loves Local' lamppost wraps (reminding shoppers to stay safe during the pandemic) and bunting.  Businesses the length and breadth of the town have been supporting the message by putting up more bunting, posters and window clings.  If you would like some for your business but do not have any yet, just get in touch! You do not need to be a One Linlithgow member business - we just want to get the message out!

Ms Hyslop said:

"Now more than ever, it is vital that we support our local shops and community and one of the main ways this can be done is by shopping local.

One Linlithgow has launched the 'Linlithgow Loves Local' campaign to encourage locals to support their community.  This pandemic has shown the importance of supporting local businesses and produce.

I think this is an excellent example of what can be achieved through local innovation, and I encourage everyone, not just in Linlithgow but in the whole of West Lothian to shop local."

Not a Scrooge in sight on Late Night Shopping night

Ding dong, merrily on high... in Linlithgow, the tills are ringing!

One Linlithgow would like to thank every business taking part in the 2019 festive late shopping event on Thursday 28th November. The event was an enormous success and participating shops were truly "stowed out" with shoppers snapping up bargains, chomping mince pies and savouring mugs of hot mulled wine!

There wasn't a single negative comment from the businesses we spoke to, with many remarking that they had actually been busy all day long - and that the event should be expanded. Plans are now in place to rebrand the 2020 event "Christmas Shopping Day" and we can't wait!

The event saw the proud relaunch of favourite project, the Linlithgow Loyalty Lottery. After a short hiatus while businesses voted One Linlithgow in to existence, festive late-shoppers were rewarded with a chance to win one of four £50 vouchers! The monthly draw will be running from December 2019 onwards, so have a look at our "Loyalty Lottery" project page and, more importantly, head along to a participating outlet and get shopping local. There's £100 to be won every month!
