The North Berwick Business Association (NBBA) has been relaunched and was awarded funding from Scotland Loves Local, a Scottish Government initiative to encourage us to think local first and support our local high streets and businesses as they emerge from lockdown.

North Berwick was recently named as the best place to live in Scotland by the Sunday Times and with its stunning views, beautiful beaches, high achieving schools and vibrant high street, it is easy to see why! Let’s all support our local businesses as they recover from a most difficult year, to ensure we keep this town bursting with such fabulous, diverse shops offering both quality and choice. 

The Scotland Loves Local funding has enabled the NBBA to facilitate a social media campaign across both Facebook and Instagram via @visitnorthberwick. These channels will tell the story of North Berwick over the coming months, focusing on the high street as well as the wider business community, sharing with locals (and visitors alike) the very best that North Berwick has to offer. In addition, local businesses are being supported by social media workshops and advice to support business resilience and growth. 

We know money spent locally is more likely to stay in the local economy and support local jobs. The Scotland Loves Local campaign encourages people to think how they can safely support this” explains Communities Secretary Aileen Campbell. 

Operating through a Facebook group, North Berwick Business Association welcomes all business owners from within the North Berwick Coastal ward. The committee has been working hard since last summer on a fee-less basis and it is hoped that the association will return to being the thriving membership organisation our vibrant town deserves, relaunching the website to support the campaign. 

What’s more, North Berwick high street vouchers make the perfect end of term gift for family, friends and teachers – allowing them to choose what to buy from a wide range of the independent shops in the town. They are available from Etc. (cash only) on the high street. 

We’d love you to join in, tell your friends and help us spread the word about North Berwick’s dynamic high street. To join in the conversation, tag @visitnorthberwick in your posts and use hashtag #LoveLocalNB on Instagram.
