In our October Newsletter we launched an appeal for Toiletries for those facing real hardship during the pandemic. We have had a wonderful response as you can see as Reverend Julie from St John’s Church shows the result.
But we need to maintain the momentum and continue to receive donations on a regular basis

Live Local, Shop Local, Eat Local
It is still a difficult time for local businesses , so please support them and ensure we have a vibrant local scene.
- During lockdown many restaurants turned to providing food deliveries or collections and as a result nearly all managed to survive whilst providing residents with delicious offerings
- Traditional food takeaways remained open
- Our wide range of smaller independent grocery stores provide a wide range of goods.
So we have had the Government Eat Out scheme which provided a life line to our local restaurants. But they all need our continuing custom throughout the week as they have all been forced to reduce the number of tables available:
- Restaurants & Takeaways Providing Collection/Delivery Services
- Local Food Shops – offering good variety of foods, Fresh veg, Deli etc
We will continue to keep our lists up to date to help support local business
Here is what our councillors have said:
Maria Alexandrou: “I believe it’s vitally important for residents to support local businesses. Thank you for providing a list of shops that are open- this is a lifeline for both residents and shop owners. These businesses after all are the backbone of our local economy and we want to see them thrive going forward.”
Dinah Barry: “Keep healthy and keep our local business healthy too. Our local businesses have look after us by delivering groceries and tasty meals. Let’s look after them. ‘Support local businesses – they are supporting us.”
