We encourage Buy It Locally (otherwise known as BILLY) to support small independent businesses in Wheathampstead.
As a business group we take advantage of our collective voice to act on your behalf to influence local issues, such as parking, CCTV and improvements to areas such as the High Street.Buy Locally
We regularly work alongside event organisers to ensure that local businesses are featured and included wherever possible. For example, we support community events run by Wheathampstead Parish Council such as Christmas Lights Up, where everyone comes together on the High Street to see the festive lights switched on. Another key event is Village Day, which typically takes place in July and celebrates village life by bringing everyone together for this free event.
We can be found at both of these events and everyone is welcome to come and have a chat with us about how we can support businesses.
