There is an economic model called the Regional Economic Multiplier Effect which basically says £1 spent locally will go to 6 or 7 other local businesses so becomes £6 or £7.
A £1 spend with Amazon goes off to where ever, never to be seen again.
Get along to the Farmer’s Markets next year and help local businesses.
How about some of Crazy Dave’s Cider?
Or maybe start with a bit of local rum 😉
Maybe a coffee? Or something else?
