Shopping safely in Lockdown

Our businesses need your support more than ever, whether it’s for essential shopping, simply for gifts or a treat for yourself, many of our stores have set up for online shopping either through their social media or websites, if you have any questions about products don’t hesitate to call them. Most are also offering vouchers to make shopping even easier.
Eventually our high streets will open fully, but in the meantime please ensure you stay safe, shop from home where possible, if using click and collect always ensure you follow the guidelines, wash hands and sanitise, wear face masks (unless exempt) when collecting, we highly recommend wearing them in the open as well, and try to keep a minimum 2 metre distance at all times.
Whilst these Lockdown regulations are harsh, they are necessary to curb infections and to protect our NHS so thank you for your understanding and loyalty to your local independent businesses.
Behind each one are real people with their own stories and their passion shows through, so take a moment to look through the lists below and show them your support, you won’t regret it.

Gift Shopping, as some of the shops sell a cornucopia of lovely things such as Art, Books, Flowers, Plants, Homeware & just beautiful gifts, there is a brief description in this category to help you find the perfect present for someone or just yourself! These are Non Essential shops so shop online, many offer local delivery which is preferable during lockdown but some do offer a timed click & collect. Some also offer postal for further afield.
