Ulverston Launches Shop Local, Stay Safe Campaign

Shop Local – stay safe is the message from a joint campaign from Ulverston Town Council and Ulverston BID, encouraging people to support local shops and businesses by shopping locally while staying safe.

In a statement, both organisations urge support for Ulverston’s businesses ‘who have risen to the challenge during the Covid outbreak’, taking orders online, offering home delivery and providing food and essential supplies to customers.

The statement, which encourages people to support businesses by shopping in person safely as well as online, reads:

The Shop Local campaign will include pavement floor stickers reinforcing the two-metre distancing rule. It also directs customers to the LoyalFree Marketplace app, which enables more and more businesses to trade online and customers to access their products.

The statement also gives details of the introduction of the 50p for one-hour car parking scheme at Buxton Place Car Park:

Whilst car parking charges will be re-introduced by SLDC on 15 June, the Town Council and BID have also partnered in funding a subsidy for car parking on Buxton Place Car Park. The two-year scheme will mean that the cost of parking for one hour is 50p and £1.00 for 2 hours.

Town Mayor, Councillor Sharon Webster, said about the Shop Local campaign:

Ulverston is open for business and this campaign really reinforces this, and encourages people to come in but stay safe at all times.

Jan Hancock, Ulverston BID Chair, said:

I’d like to pay tribute to Ulverston’s businesses who responded brilliantly to the lockdown restrictions, some staying open for food and essential supplies and others providing online ordering and delivery services – thank you one and all. We now urge you to keep faith with these local traders and give them your continued support – Shop local and help the town’s economy revive and thrive.
