Totally Locally National Fiver Fest returning to Limavady

The ‘Totally Locally National Fiver Fest’ is returning to Limavady this year – giving you lots of opportunities to avail of special offers from the town’s independent shops and businesses.

This innovative celebration of our independent high streets takes place from March 12th – 26th and is supported by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Environmental Resource Team.

After taking part in the national initiative for the first-time last year, Limavady was selected as ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Fiver Fest Awards. Participating businesses are now looking forward to sharing their £5 deals with you once again.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Richard Holmes, commented: “It’s very encouraging to see Limavady’s success in this initiative last year and now the town is preparing for its second ‘Fiver Fest’, which is great news for our local consumers.

“This is an opportunity to say thank you to customers while highlighting the significant benefits of choosing to shop locally, which links in with Council’s ShopSmart campaign. Like FiverFest, it’s about raising awareness about the positive collective impact of supporting the shops and businesses in our towns and villages.”

“Well done to the retailers who are coming together to make this possible and I hope it is another successful campaign.”

Fiver Fest is based around the now famous Totally Locally £5 message: “If every adult in Limavady spent just £5 per week in their local independent shops and businesses, it would mean £2.3 million per year going directly into our local economy. Which can lead to more jobs, a better high street, a stronger economy & a nicer place to live. Makes you think doesn’t it?!”

For Fiver Fest, Totally Locally is partnering with Visa, and together, they are calling on shoppers to divert £5 of their weekly spend to support the small businesses in their communities.

YouGov research has shown that 59% of shoppers have used more local shops to support them during lockdown. And they want to keep on supporting them. Fiver Fest makes that even easier.

For any independent business wishing to participate in the Fiver Fest in Limavady, please contact Fiona Watters by emailing Fiona.Watters@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk.  All you need do is put on great £5 offers for your customers for the duration of the celebration.

So far, the following businesses have already signed up to take part: Lovely Looks, Limitless Adventure NI, Finishing Touches Too, Row by Roe, Route 66, North Atlantic Fishing, The Yellow Bird, Cafe Piazza and Wee Smellies.
