Argyll and Bute’s council is asking for communities and businesses to give their ideas on the best way to promote a shop local messages in seven towns and Islay across the area.
Community Links, which is working with the council to create new, bespoke and locally relevant poster campaigns, has set up a series of on-line meetings so that people can contribute their ideas to encourage people to shop local.
Based on the views and ideas gathered, Community Links will produce a brief for a designer, who will then produce a draft poster for each town, which reflects local messaging, and an overarching banner for Argyll and Bute that any business can utilise.
Some meetings have already been held, but the ones still to take place are:
