"When you use the Exeter Pound, you’re helping local businesses survive and prosper. For each pound you spend they will employ more people, and re-spend more locally than national or international businesses. You can also be sure they pay their taxes, contributing to public services in the UK.
Using the Exeter Pound encourages a more connected and thriving local economy, where we depend more on one another, and less on the ups and downs of the global financial system. Goods travel less far, which is also good for the earth.
The notes bear designs contributed by local people, showing those things we value, identify with and that we are proud of, the special things that belong to us all."
Martyn Goss - Chair of the Exeter Pound Board
