Across the country on July 4, 2014, the public will be encouraged to buy at least one item from their local independent shops to celebrate Independents’ Day 2014.

Organised nationally by the National Skills Academy for Retail and People First and locally by Bridgwater Town Team, it is now in its fourth year.

Independent traders include: Avenue Blinds and Curtains, BB Gowns, Blackmore Farm, Earthstation, Fine Memorials, Ken Baker Hair Design, Inspirational Crafts, Jools Jewellery, SHHH!, Timeless Images, Treacle Well Tea Rooms, and Wilkins Jewellers.

To raise awareness of this year’s campaign, there will be a range of ‘special offers’ to shoppers in stores and on the FREE Bridgwater Town Guide app, along with a range of events and activities.

In partnership with, the Town Team will be running an Independents’ Trail Competition. Shoppers can follow the trail map on the Bridgwater Town Guide mobile app, find the clues inside stores and enter some basic details to enter into a draw for a fantastic prize package valued at over £600.

Just download the app from your phone’s app store.
