It's been a fantastic summer for the Lake District Pound!
Since launching back in May we've been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm for our new local currency.
We'd like to say a big thank you to all of you who helped our local communities by swapping your Sterling for LD£ and spending them in all our unique, independent local businesses!
People are loving the Lake District Pound
Since May 1 around LD£90,000 has gone into circulation! That's about LD£4000 every week and more people are swapping and spending LD£ all the time!
The LD£ community is getting bigger and bigger!
There are now over 350 lovely cafes, restaurants, attractions, art galleries, lake cruises, pubs, shops and more for you to explore with your LD£! Our community has grown to include great attractions like Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway in West Cumbria. And, this week, we launched the LD£ in about 50 businesses in Kendal!
Next year's going to be even better!
We've already started working on the LD£ designs for next year, with new characters and stories! The brand new LD£ will all be revealed later this year. We can't wait!
