Pop To The Shops

Our latest campaign, funded by the Government’s Welcome Back Fund, is encouraging residents to support our local shops with a clear message that this is good for our community, our economy and the planet.
Before the Coronavirus epidemic around £1 in every £5 was spent online, now that is £3 in every £5. Despite this research from PwC has shown that two thirds of people will try to support local businesses and buy locally going forward. This campaign aims to remind everyone what a valuable place shops and traders have in our local community.


As part of a range of initiatives we have started working with ShopAppy to help traders promote their businesses.

ShopAppy is FREE for Mid Sussex traders to join for 12 months (to March 2023).

Businesses who would like to find out more and sign up to the free 12-month ShopAppy Mid Sussex promotion can contact Caryl Davies at shoplocal@shopappy.com or call her on 07817 529835.

This initiative has been part funded by the Government’s Welcome Back Fund with funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
