Local businesses in Kendal are celebrating Independent's Day.

The national campaign aims to promote businesses and highlight the benefits of buying local products.

Traders will showcase their goods in the market place in hope to encourage more customers to visit independent shops.

Figures suggest that if every adult in Kendal spent £5 per week in their local independent shops, it would be worth an extra 5.1 million pounds to the local economy.
