Now is the time to start thinking local, spending local and keeping it local
We wish to Welcome you back to our town centre.
The Keeping It Local LB campaign is a local initiative designed to encourage those who live in Leighton-Linslade to keep it local first.
Our small businesses whether a restaurant, cafe, book shop or gift shop, are the centre of our local economy. The people who run those businesses are our friends, brothers and sisters, neighbours and more, and their investment in a town centre business is an investment in our town community. Whether it’s a last-minute birthday gift or catching up with friends in the local pub, our town centre is always there for the community as well as visitors.
By using the Keeping It Local message accompanied by this distinctive town centre logo, we aim to keep Leighton Buzzard at the forefront of people’s minds, placing it firmly on the destination map. The instantly recognisable logo shows a pride in our town centre, our history and our businesses that operate within.
Our High Street is not just a series of buildings where people live, or things are bought and sold – it tells a story of investment, interactions and the numerous characters involved.
Join us in celebrating Leighton Buzzard town centre.
