Judges said of the Shop Local This Christmas campaign:

A creative and fun implementation of the ‘shop local’ message. The video was so much fun but also authentic, creating attractive and shareable content by using local people.

“It has good measurement which demonstrated they had achieved and exceeded their goals.

“A campaign that made the judges smile – and we’re a tough crowd!

Managing director, Lyndsey Jenkins, said:

We’re thrilled that our work has once again been recognised in the annual PR awards for Wales. As a Cowbridge-based business, the work we’ve been doing for Vale of Glamorgan Council, encouraging residents to shop locally following the devastating impact COVID19 restrictions had on high streets in the area, is something we’re incredibly proud of and we loved working with traders to create the ‘Shop Local This Christmas’ video.

“We’re incredibly proud of the work we create for our clients and its great to get this third-party validation. Its testament to the creativity and hard work of our team who absolutely love what they do.
