Made in Grimsby & Cleethorpes C.I.C. was created by a girl who learned to love the town she thought she hated.

Made in Grimsby and Cleethorpes C.I.C is a not-for-profit marketing platform aimed at small local businesses that don’t have the budgets to invest in marketing.


Many small businesses in Grimsby and Cleethorpes can’t afford to hire a marketing agency to assist them in boosting their online presence of their business, so I want to offer these services for a low cost or free wherever possible.

The vision of Made in Grimsby and Cleethorpes C.I.C is to support and promote small business owners who may be constrained by limited budgets when it comes to establishing a robust online presence. This vision is not only practical but also essential, especially in today’s digital age where an online presence can significantly impact a business’s success. By providing support to these entrepreneurs, we aim to enable them to realise their full potential and compete effectively in the online marketplace. This vision aligns with my personal role as a freelance copywriter and the online directory of local businesses, as it represents my commitment to helping others succeed in the digital space.
