At a time when we are urged to stay at home and only venture out for short journeys to obtain essential supplies, we are very fortunate to have a number of businesses in our own parish able to cater for most of our needs. Here is a reminder of our local traders and what they have to offer – ever since the initial March 2020 lockdown, they have remained open (when permitted by law) and operated under difficult conditions, following Covid-19 protocols while still providing excellent, friendly service so let’s all continue to give them the support they deserve!
