Fiver Fest: 10 – 24 October 2020

Are you up for Totally Locally Axminster’s Fiver Fest? Two weeks of great deals across the town as independent traders say thank you for the loyalty they have enjoyed through the past difficult months.

It’s also a time when you can show those businesses your own appreciation of their efforts. Don’t just invest in the special deals, take a look around and get to know the people who run them.

Independent traders are the backbone of a town like Axminster. Few national chains invest here, so the future relies greatly on the indies. If you support them, you are helping to keep your own town alive.

There are strong signs right now that Axminster’s fortune are changing. If we all do our bit to maintain the momentum there is real hope for the future, making Axminster even better for all our benefits.
