We are working to make sure residents feel safe and are confident visiting their local high streets.
As part of the Reopening High Streets Safely project, which is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund, we have launched a #LoveLocal campaign.
It promotes Lichfield city and Burntwood town centres and other high streets across the district, while reinforcing safety messages, such as keeping hands clean, wearing a face covering and making space for others.
The #LoveLocal campaign features posters, banners, social media graphics, information leaflets, as well as queue waiting stickers and window vinyls for local businesses to use.
We have a library of resources for shops or businesses across the district to use, and the council’s information officer is continuing to hand out materials to businesses based in Lichfield and Burntwood.
#LoveLocal this Christmas
This festive season we’re encouraging communities across the district to safely support their local high streets, as part of our #LoveLocal This Christmas campaign.
The winter lockdown has given us a bit of an extra challenge, but many local businesses are offering online shopping and click and collect services, so please do continue to support them.
Check out our online directory to lockdown shopping across the district.
Order your pack of resources
We are continuing to offer shops and businesses social distancing floor stickers, posters and a window vinyl. However, if you are a local business, and we haven’t got to you yet, and you would like to order a pack of resources, please fill in this quick form and we will get your pack out to you.

You can book a visit from our information officer who can offer you advice, signpost you to information, and give you our #LoveLocal resource pack.
