Welcome to the Local Economy working group
Our aim is to make the town as self-sufficient as possible in the necessities of life. That includes:
- encouraging residents to support the local shops in order to keep the town centre active and profitable.
- Helping to keep Kirkbymoorside as an attractive place to do the weekly shopping.
- Encouraging communication and mutual help between the team of local retailers.
- Encouraging the circulation of money within the local community rather than it being pocketed by the shareholders of giant, distant corporations.
A proportion of every pound that is spent locally is then re-used locally and brings immediate and increased benefits to the local community.
● Producing a fully indexed Kirkbymoorside Shopping Guide, to encourage people to shop locally.

● Bringing together local retailers to share ideas about the local economy
● Explore the possibility of creating a local currency
