Love your Local Market 2015
This year the Love Your Local Market campaign managed to see an incredible 1100 markets register throughout the UK smashing last years total.
When you look at what has been achieved since 2012 it is a remarkable achievement. Throughout the UK 7000 people have tried their hand at market trading, 1000 new businesses have been launched and 10000 events have been organised.
The LYLM fortnight also achieved massive 17 million social media imprints and with the introduction of other European countries this celebration has gone from strength to strength helping to highlight the importance of markets.
Oswestry had a number of local schools and colleges get involved as well as charity groups. And our market benefited from promotion through the local press and local radio. And this will no doubt be the same with markets throughout the UK helping to put markets into the forefront of peoples minds.
