Local Economy


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.
