Why is it important to support local businesses?
Moments of public crisis such as the one we’re enduring at the moment serve to highlight the importance of small local businesses.

A buzzing high street full of originality and diversity is where we want to get our daily products and services. By shopping locally, we are bettering our Borough, the environment, and our products!
