Dalkeith Loves Local
Now more than ever it’s important to support your local businesses. Dalkeith Loves Local is encouraging locals to do just that to help business owners and the town’s high street.
Dalkeith Loves Local is an initiative which is part of the bigger, Scotland-wide campaign, Scotland Loves Local. This local initiative is being driven by avid locals, assisted by One Dalkeith Development Trust, Midlothian Council, Business Gateway Midlothian and Business & Community Groups to promote Dalkeith and its businesses to locals.
With Scotland back in lockdown and people asked to stay at home, businesses are adapting the way they work in order to survive. This comes at a time when the community are relying on ever decreasing options for getting their essentials in a safe manner. Dalkeith Loves Local aims to close this gap, assisting both local residents, helping them to find the things that they need safely, and local businesses, to reach local people. The campaign wants to help Dalkeith town thrive whilst keeping all residents safe.
Think Local First
The campaign ethos is all about thinking local first, encouraging the Dalkeith community to support businesses by shopping local. This will mean that the local high street shops, local tradespeople, small businesses who work from home, freelancers and more can all be supported and helped to survive these unprecedented times.
The campaign looks to highlight that it is the people behind local businesses who make the town centre special – not simply the buildings. It also encourages everyone to show their support safely, following the latest social distancing and hygiene guidance.
