#Use your village not your vehicle 

Clanfield traders are urging villagers to buy from our local shops and to use local businesses and are encouraging everyone to use the hashtag #useyourvillagenotyourvehicle to reinforce the message.

Clanfield Online chairman, Nigel Hadwen and neighbouring shop owner Holly Walton are at the forefront of a campaign to encourage us to spend locally, supporting village businesses. Nigel Hadwen commented “Shopping and using local business services brings money back into our community and, with petrol prices at an all-time high, it make sense to leave the car at home.”

Nigel is also encouraging us to buy the final 100 Clanfield shopping bags that are in stock in his shop, Clanfield Greengrocers & Florist and at Budgens. These strong reusable bags, priced at £3.00, have been very popular with shoppers. We have sold nearly 1,000 since 2017 with proceeds being used for community projects.

Clanfield Online has 60 business members who provide the funds to pay for village projects including Christmas trees, this year’s jubilee flag bunting, flower beds, tree planting and the  sponsorship of local clubs and organisations. All we ask is that you support them as they are supporting our village. Who are our business members?  Take a look at the list – you will be surprised at variety of professions, skills, shops and trades.
