British Pound Notes

The Magic Tenner campaign is all about how money flows around the local economy and highlighting just how much impact local businesses and shop have in the community. There’s a bit of maths that says if you spend £10 in a shop that sells stuff from local producers the amount of money that goes back into the local economy can be over £50!

Imagine picking up a pork pie for your lunch.

If you buy a local-made pie from a local shop, a big part of your money is passed on to the local piemaker.

The shop employs a local accountant or even a decorator.

In turn, the piemaker who sources his meat from a local farm spends a big percentage of his money with the farmer.

The farmer then spends some of his money at his local garage, the garage owner then…

Well, you get the idea. Generally speaking, 80p of every £1 spent with independents stays in the local economy. It's a really important message!

The famous £5 message

The simplest of messages. Spend £5 a week in your local independent shops & businesses and it adds up to a huge impact for your local economy. 

In Tavistock, that equates to £2.6 million a year going back into our local economy. This message makes people stop and think, and how a change in shopping behaviour can have a huge impact if everyone does the same!

FIVER FEST makes it easy for people to spend their £5 as the whole town puts on special offers for a Fiver.

It is very simple – loads of great local independent businesses advertise £5 offers in celebration and as thank you to customers.


Customers can take advantage of some great bargains and at same time support the high street.
