Support your local shops and get children back to school

 As the start of the new school year approaches many families will be thinking about the practicalities of returning to school in September.

As part of our backing business campaign, we are encouraging families to shop locally when getting everything they need for their children to return to school, whether that’s stationery, school bags and lunch boxes, clothes, shoes or those much needed back to school haircuts.

Many of our high street shops and local businesses are ready to help parents get everything they need and are counting on your support.

When you visit your local shops, to reduce the risk of catching or spreading the virus, you should:

  • Keep your distance and protect yourself and others.
  • Wear a face covering.
  • Be patient if queuing.
  • Stay at home if you’re unwell.

Please stay safe and shop local whenever you can.
