Can you believe it’s only 100 sleeps until Christmas?!
This year more than ever we all need to support local businesses, our high street’s and town centre’s. Our friends, family and neighbour’s may be one of these small business owners , or local community leaders, and they may have really struggled during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We can all do ‘our bit’ to help these businesses and organisations, by buying directly from them (rather than online), using their services or maybe even donating or volunteering with them.
