Shoppers can enjoy great deals in Sleaford while seeing how their spending ripples out across the local economy in North Kesteven through a new campaign.
The Magic Tenner event runs from Saturday 7 October until Saturday 21 October and will see a number of retailers in the town offering up £10 deals. You can spot these offers by looking for Magic Tenner posters in shop windows.
Lots of those taking part are also displaying Magic Tenner posters with the number of local businesses that supply or work with them – so you can see how your £10 spent there will directly support other local people and livelihoods.
The campaign also leads into RiverLight Festival 2023 in Sleaford, which will see the town centre filled with light and colour once again though live performances, installations and activities, music, and is a great opportunity to shop local. The festival officially begins with a week of fringe events from Saturday 14 October and finishes with a finale day on Saturday 21 October.
