This year has been a difficult year for many, but some of those most affected are the town’s local independent traders.
With the Government’s announcement of non-essential shops being able to re-open during December, the Town Council is urging its residents to back local businesses and high streets this Christmas.
A spokesperson from the Council commented: “We are lucky to have a wonderful town packed with a variety of independent traders, but who have suffered greatly over the past months and had to deal with considerable disruption. They have been working hard, preparing for a safe return, now let us support them and celebrate our high street.”
They continued: “Whilst we encourage you to use our town and its shops, please can we take this opportunity to remind you to stick to social distancing and safety guidelines, protecting our local businesses in these challenging times.”
The Town Council have decorated the town with a colourful display of Christmas lights and are encouraging the town’s shops to decorate their windows with Christmas displays. A wonderful prize of afternoon tea at Rookery Hall is on offer for the best dressed window, which will be presented by the Mayor in December.
