Empowering Community, Empowering Businesses.
Welcome to Hillsborough Together, a community-based project dedicated to strengthening the bond between our residents and supporting the growth of independent businesses. We believe that a thriving community is built on the foundation of vibrant local businesses, and we are committed to fostering an environment where they can flourish.
Hillsborough Together recognises the unique value that independent businesses bring to our community. They not only provide essential goods and services but also contribute to the character and charm that make Hillsborough a special place to live. By supporting these local entrepreneurs, we can help create a sustainable and diverse economy that benefits everyone.
Through our project, we aim to bring the community closer to independent businesses by organising events and initiatives that highlight their offerings and encourage residents to shop local. Our calendar is filled with exciting activities such as pop-up markets, business showcases, and community fairs, where residents can discover the hidden gems within our community and connect with the passionate individuals behind them.
We also understand the importance of providing resources and support to help independent businesses thrive. Hillsborough Together offers workshops, mentorship programs, and networking opportunities that empower entrepreneurs with the knowledge and tools they need to succeed. By fostering collaboration and sharing expertise, we create an environment where independent businesses can grow, innovate, and contribute to the overall prosperity of our community.
In addition to our events and support programs, Hillsborough Together actively promotes the "Shop Local" movement. We encourage residents to prioritise independent businesses when making purchasing decisions, recognising that every pound spent locally has a direct and positive impact on our community. By choosing to support independent businesses, we not only contribute to the local economy but also help create jobs, preserve the unique character of our community, and foster a sense of pride and ownership among residents.
