This is the first in a series of 'videos in the dark' that we've decided to shoot for hippyshopper to try and save energy, hot on the success of Google's "blackle"...OK. only joking, but please be warned, the picture quality of this video is very dark, for which we apologise.
That aside, Catwalk Queen's Laura Street and myself had a lovely afternoon talking to Diana Bird, founder of the Wedge Card, the world's first loyalty card for local stores, which encourages its owners to discover the delights of local shopping. You'll benefit as a cardholder, with discounts at all shops that sign up for the scheme. But most importantly you'll be helping to revitalise communities and local traders, many of which are in danger of being swallowed up by retail giants. And investing in a Wedge card has never been better value, as Diana also told us she has just reduced the cost of the card to £10 from 20. Sign up for yours here!
