...A way to increase circulation of The Lewes Pound
Here in Lewes we all need to do our bit to help local businesses. From 20th April you can show your support - and be rewarded for your efforts - by taking part in The Lewes Pound Spring Cashback. At selected shops in Lewes you'll be given "free" Lewes Pounds when you spend over a minimum amount.
There's a fantastic range of products to choose from: from basic essentials to books, bags, CDs, and jewellery and accessories. You can pay with card or cash - and you can spend your free Lewes Pounds at any of the independent traders who take them.
The shops taking part in the Cashback are: Lansdown Health Foods on Cliffe High Street, Skylark in the Needlemakers, TwinkleTwinkle (and Twinkle Toes) on Market Street, Laporte’s in Lansdown Place and Shimalinon School Hill. If the trial is a success, there are plans to roll out the scheme to the whole of Lewes.
There has been a wave of publicity this year about local currencies being launched in Bristol and Brixton. Could the tide be turning as people see the need to protect their high streets from invasion by the chain stores? So shop local, get your free Cashback – and help Lewes flourish!
