We have much to offer people locally

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

SALE and its surrounding towns are filled with fantastic local businesses.

A great way to celebrate our diversity and support our local community is to shop locally this Christmas.

We have award-winning restaurants, caf s and hotels to help people celebrate the festive season; why not round up the family and friends for an easy night out?

Great gifts can be found at our range of unique boutique stores, from the best clothing and home wares to fantastic locally made goods and everything in between.

Perhaps a voucher from one of our luxurious hair or beauty salons for a delightful pamper or floral treats from our talented florists.

During this holiday season why not fill your table with locally grown meat, dairy and produce?

By choosing to support our local butchers, delicatessens and fruiterers, shoppers will also support local farmers and suppliers.

Relax and unwind in many of our local tourist destinations.

There are many great camping spots, comfy accommodation and stunning sights to see.

People who holiday locally will not only beat the traffic, but see more of what makes our little part of the world wonderful.

By doing any or all of these things we can help keep money in our local community, support local jobs and help provide future jobs, help the environment, benefit from local expertise and help make our community a destination.

By spending just an extra $100 each locally, we could make a massive difference in our community and local economy.
