We were delighted to champion the first ever Scotland Loves Local Week which ran from the 28th August to 3rd September.
Local Government Minister Joe FitzPatrick and Community Wealth Minister Tom Arthur visited Linlithgow on Monday 28th August to officially launch Scotland Loves Local Week, a celebration of the dedication and determination which is strengthening communities and economies across the country.
The special week championed the Scotland Loves Local message, putting localism at the heart of a stronger, fairer future for Scotland’s towns.
More than 40 MSPs and MPs visited businesses in their constituencies to chat with staff and show their support for all that they do for communities – highlighting their importance to jobs and encouraging investment.
Social media posts across all STP channels reached tens of thousands of people, using the hashtags #ScotlandLovesLocal and #ChooseLocal.
