“There are also plenty of small shops around that offer Welsh craft and locally designed gifts and of course the choice for local food gifts is aplenty.

 

“It really is worth having a look. These are small decisions we can make that will have a big impact on our rural economy.

 

“A pound spent locally will go much further than a pound spent in a chain store and it keeps our rural economies going.

 

“By supporting our local businesses we do not help a CEO buy a third holiday home but we help a local mum and dad put food on the table, a family pay their mortgage, a little girl get those dance lessons and a little boy get his favourite team shirt.”
