Small businesses are the backbones of local communities.

They provide employment for local people, they sponsor our clubs, associations and community events.

Now its time for us to rally together and support those, who support us. We ask our community to come together and support our local business members and help them come through the other side of Covid-19.

Please support the following local, independant traders where you can and let them know we are here for them.

How you can support our local businesses

The most obvious way you can support small businesses is by choosing local, over larger national retailers. The big busineses can take a hit to the wallet much easier than a small businesses. Some local small businesses may not come out of this at the other end of this without your support.

Use you local butcher, greengrocer, produce supplier - many are providing free delivery services at the moment.

Go to your local coffee shop, cafe or restaurant, they've made some great changes to continue trading in the current environment.

If your car needs a service, or you have jobs around the house or yard you've been putting off, contact a local business to get them done for you.
