Would you like to be involved in Fiver Fest next month?

Fiver Fest is a National event for independent retailers, running for two weeks from 12th – 26th June.  It was created by an organisation called “Totally Locally”.

The idea of the two week campaign grew from a Totally Locally message showing the huge impact people spending  £5 per week in local independent shops can have on our High Streets.

Fiver Fest is strictly for independent businesses, of which we have many in Minehead.

The £5 message seems to have captured the imagination of many people, and makes it easy for people to say “I’m going to spend my £5 to support my High Street”.  It also shows that your business appreciates and values your customers by putting together a great offer for them.

All you need to do is to create an irresistible £5 offer!​ For potential customers, Fiver Fest is all about getting great bargains for a fiver! Offers should be something with a £5 spend to tie in with the £5 message - something discounted from a usual price of at least £7/8, but the bigger the discount the better!

At this stage we are guaging whether there would be enough businesses interested to arrange a campaign - please have a look at the recent message about it by following the link below and contact Sharon and Livvi at Daffodil PR if you would like to join in.
