Totally Locally is a worldwide campaign put together by Chris Sands, an award-winning expert in branding and marketing, based in Hebden Bridge in the North of England.
Totally Locally is not funded, is not a big organisation, is not connected to any organisation or government initiative and there is no cost to businesses.
Totally Locally Hartlepool has recently been launched in the town by local business owners Sara Harvey- Daisy and Beas Café, Ste Harvey- Steron Locksmiths, and Janice Auton -Poppys Hairdressing.
The initiative is aimed to help promote independent businesses in Hartlepool and to keep residents informed of the great independent shops in the town.
Totally Locally was created for those businesses who have a shop front but there is also a following of lots of other types of local independent businesses that are not on the high street e.g. services, trades, creative organisations.
Independent businesses owners have the opportunity to share information about their business, success stories, celebrations, job opportunities, new products and services.
Totally Locally Hartlepool has a Facebook page and work has started on promoting Hartlepool’s first Totally Locally Fiver Fest which will run between 5th-12th October 2019. More information on this can be found at www.totallylocally.org/stuff/totally-locally-fiver-fest/
