#WeAreNailsea is not limited to shops physically on the high street and can include any service or product provider within Nailsea, such as garages, health and beauty salons, hairdressers, independent shops, tradespeople and more!

The new #WeAreNailsea website is part of the #WeAreLocals initiative, which helps towns and high streets create online identities and reach communities.

#WeAreLocals works in partnership with BIDs (Business Improvement District), Councils and Town Centres to keep people shopping local. It started as a lockdown project to aid independent businesses in continuing to sell products, however now the long-term goal is to continue supporting local businesses and helping them transition to online environments.
