Wow what a busy Month for Chipping Sodbury!

The Chamber of commerce Won an a Award for The Business and Economy Category and Overall South Zone Winner is: Shop Local, Shop Sodbury!

With the arrival of a new Tesco Extra store in Yate, just one mile from Sodbury, and with a Waitrose coming to the town in late 2012 it is imperative that Chipping Sodbury offers a unique and inviting experience to all visitors.

Shop Local, Shop Sodbury was launched in June 2011 to encourage people to shop locally – and to capitalize on the expected increased footfall to the town (which on average is around 17% when a Waitrose opens). The campaign reinforces the Chamber’s message that Chipping Sodbury has a diverse range of businesses and is a great place to visit both for retail and leisure purposes .

We had Festival week which was buzzing with lots of activities! Pure Dance Crew preformed twice during the week sporting their Swagger T-shirts. performing three different Dance routines which people in Chipping Sodbury High Street stoped to watch!

The Food Festival was a great success, the rain holding off for the Farmers Market in the Morning. We here at Swagger wanted to be involved with the food theme so a baking inspired window it had to be! sporting our best selling apron 'wine makes mummy clever'.

The Christmas room waiting for it's pink paint (Swagger touch)
