Indie Oxford August News!
Our Indie Oxford August News is a roundup of indie news, plus great projects that are happening in Oxford and Oxfordshire. This is a new blog feature for Independent Oxford, and somewhere for independent businesses to share their news, and celebrate our great community of local indies.
These times continue to be challenging for small businesses, so we wanted to create as many ways as possible for them to be able to connect with you, as indie supporters. There are some amazing innovations and new ideas coming out of the indie community, so it’s exciting to share their news and stories of resilience through the toughest times. If we want to save small shops that add character, vibrancy and community to our villages, towns, and cities we need to take action, whether that’s with our wallets, or spreading the love through social media and word of mouth. The people that run Oxfordshire indies are our neighbours, friends and family, and they really need us all to be their cheerleaders at the moment.
We are always looking for ways to support independent businesses so please do email us with your indie stories and ideas, or share your experiences with us on Twitter and Instagram using #indieoxford.
