Bag yourself a bargain this weekend

From burgers and beer to designer cushions, t-shirts and toys to chicken breasts – Newark will be awash with bargains this weekend!

Bag yourself a bargain and you’ll be doing your bit to help create more jobs and improved facilities in the Newark area, making it a better place to live in, work in and visit.

All it takes is for every adult in the area to spend just £5 a week in their independent shops instead of online or at the big supermarkets and a whopping £5.4 million extra a year would find its way into the local economy…

And there couldn’t be a better time to start than right now – just check out the Fiver Fest details here or pick up a leaflet from participating retailers.

With special offers on everything from chocolates, champagne and candles to eye tests, wallpaper and paints – not to mention a Buskers Competition and the Newark Blues Festival both taking place too – there’s something to tempt everyone into town this weekend.
