Quick! Take a walk ... and SHOP LOCAL!!!

As I write it's just 4 days until Christmas Day.


Last year I wrote an intro to our Gift Guide and I'm pretty much repeating it this year, things don't change that much in reality!


Each year I say 'I'll get things done nice and early this year' and I'm sure I'm not alone in this, the reality being that I find I've got no wrapping paper on Christmas Eve as I gather the random bundle of stuff I've pulled together over the last few days!


My wife's not like me. Planning starts early, gifts for family and friends bought from local shops over the counter and hardly a delivery in sight - in fact it could be said that you don't need next day delivery when you go to a shop and buy it - you get to take it home the same day!


We have some great local businesses in Chesterfield and it's our job to do all we can to support them. People moan about the state of the high street but then order everything online. People moan about parking charges but are happy to pay £4 for postage.


The suggestions shown below are just from our recent advertisers and the thing about this list is you can go and fetch them! No need to worry if the delivery will arrive in time for the big day and once you've got a good idea of the places you want to shop, pick out a place for lunch and you have your day planned.


Not only will the day be enjoyable but you will have done your bit for the local economy. Remember every pound you spend with an independent is likely to end up being reinvested back in a local business, and if every resident of Chesterfield spent £20 on gifts locally this Christmas that would put £2.1 million back into the local economy.


This year, let's take a walk for our gifts. If you want to cut down on the leg-work take a visit to www.un-hampered.co.uk to find a selection of Chesterfield's fabulous independent businesses.
