Keep it local

Teignmouth, has a host of unique and friendly shops, Bishopsteignton and Shaldon are fortunate to have thriving local shops. Both villages have a chemist, general store and post office, it is always a case of use them or loose them.

Teignmouth Traders' Association have made a great effort to brighten up Teignmouth for Christmas; I've supported them with 1,000 grant and the town council agreed to match their fund raising. Our local shops and businesses need our support more than ever. Local shops boost the local economy, provide genuine choice and are a good environmental option. The most important thing you can do is to buy more from your local shops - choosing local products wherever possible.

You can find out more about your local shops by clicking on the link for the Teignmouth Traders site; the Bishopsteignton and Shaldon village sites list village businesses. (on the right under 'Links')
