Readers are urged to support high street shopping in the Reach campaign


Three sister titles urged readers to support their local high streets in a new campaign.

The Derby Telegraph, Lincolnshire Echo and Nottingham Post have joined forces for the ‘Love Your Local’ campaign, which aims to highlight the challenges faced by independent businesses in Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

The campaign is also running on the print titles’ counterpart websites – Derbyshire Live, Lincolnshire Live and Nottinghamshire Live.

The Post announced the launch of the campaign on its front page yesterday (27), pictured, focusing on business in the Bulwell area of ​​Nottingham.

Natalie Fahy, editor of titles owned by Reach plc, told HTFP: “Times are tough for small independent businesses in all the titles I oversee.

“We have published several articles over the past few weeks about businesses that have successfully emerged from the pandemic, but are now closing due to lack of footfall.

“We can all agree that our towns and villages would be less important places without these shops and cafes, and you can often save money by visiting them.

“We will highlight a different independent business each week on Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire Live and associated print titles.”
