In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, a spark ignited within our local community. Recognizing the need for solidarity and support, HCS birthed “Local First” as a humble yet powerful movement in an attempt to keep as much money as we possibly could – local.
Conceived within the nurturing embrace of HCS (Hibiscus Coast Community Hub), this movement aimed to connect, uplift, and rally the locals who sought a lifeline during challenging times and build a network that cannot be defined by the recessions and pandemics.
From these modest beginnings, Local First has grown by leaps and bounds, fueled by the commitment of our vibrant community and of course team members. But our journey is far from over. Our vision is clear: we won’t rest until we have the absolute best of our region listed and celebrated.
HCS, our community’s beating heart, has been the cornerstone of this remarkable journey. Together, we embark on the #TheLocalFirstChallenge. It’s a challenge exclusively designed for locals like you, encouraging each of us to invest at least 10% more in our local treasures every month.
As we deepen our local connections, we also invite the world to discover the hidden gems of the Hibiscus Coast through our directory. Join us on this incredible journey of local pride, growth, and discovery along the Hibiscus Coast
