AD I'm a big believer in supporting local businesses and I hope 2020 has taught more people that buying local, supporting local and making your community thrive and stay alive is more important than ever.I love the fact that when I buy or visit local, I get to see and talk to a person, someone who lives in my community and someone who has actually created what or where i am shopping. I love nothing more than to see where things like my coffee beans have come from and the story about how they came about. The best part about it all is you can almost always find or be connected to something new in the area.
Like when the first time i visited @badhandcoffee
to collect my locally roasted beans, i suddenly discovered that not only were they roasting beans but they were building a community of local businesses supporting each other under one roof - A coffee roaster, a yoga studio, a barbers, a graphic design team, a tattoo studio and a vegan caterer. Check out my stories to see more about them all. That's why I'm supporting and working with @shareasmilesw
to talk about all the amazing local tourism and leisure businesses in the south west, doing their thing in our communities. If you live in the South West, comment below and make sure you tag local tourism and leisure places that you recommend other locals should visit this Autumn. I'd love to continue to learn about new things to do and see in the South West, as i truly believe we are the coast with the most!
