Make It Local
Make it Local is an initiative that is designed to encourage people within the district to shop locally and support local businesses.
Christmas 2023 Make it Local Campaign
Christmas 2023 ‘Make It Local’ promotional campaign has been launched by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Valerie Harte.
The campaign coincides with the busy shopping period on the approach to Christmas and shines a light on a range of businesses from Newry and Downpatrick that have been impacted by the floods.
It promotes the Council’s ‘Make It Local’ message, which highlights the district’s unique business offering and encourages residents to prioritise local products and services above others when purchasing their Christmas gifts.
If you cannot visit a store in person, another brilliant way to show your support is to buy a gift voucher for a loved one.
The Christmas campaign is supporting:
