Aims of the campaign

As many retail and hospitality businesses are reopening following closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, North Devon Council have launched the ‘Live Love Local’ campaign to encourage our residents to continue giving local businesses the heart-warming support seen throughout lockdown.

The campaign asks our residents to shop, buy and eat locally, thereby injecting money into the local economy to help it recover from the damage caused during the coronavirus pandemic. This includes making lifestyle choices that will help protect the natural environment in Ilfracombe and across North Devon; taking advantage of the shops, restaurants and leisure facilities on our doorstep reduces the impact on our environment.

Live Love Local Facebook page

NDC  have launched a Live Love Local Facebook page (@LiveLoveLocalNorthDevon), which will be a central place for local businesses to advertise their offer, opening hours and any promotions, and where we will post any current news or advice for both business owners and those who buy from them.

NDC and Ilfracombe Town Council have some more exciting initiatives in the pipeline to support our brilliant local businesses and will keep you posted! In the meantime, please use the hashtag #LiveLoveLocal in any social media posts involving local shops, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities.
