Businesses rally together

Matlock businesses are getting together in a bid to keep custom local.

Matlock Town Team and Transition Matlock have invited a speaker from Totally Locally to a meeting at Moca, in Dale Road, at 6pm on Tuesday, April 17.

Totally Locally is about reminding people of great local businesses they have and why they should support them.

If every adult in the Matlock area spent £5 a week with their local independent shops and businesses instead of with the big supermarkets or out of the area online retailers, it will be worth an extra £2.5 million into the local economy.
