This Christmas Shop Local, Shop Green

Calling all eco-conscious local businesses!

This Christmas, West Berkshire Council is going to be showcasing our independent local businesses with green initiatives by creating an online magazine. This is to encourage residents to shop local and shop green, as part of the Council’s aim to make West Berkshire greener. So, whether you are a farmshop selling locally-sourced produce, or an craft store with eco-friendly gifts, tell them more to be included in the Christmas magazine!
