#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.

From independent shops to high street stores, the district is packed with plenty of places to buy presents for family and friends.

The November 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.

Shopping for food and gifts in the district will help support the local economy, boosting the area during these challenging times.


A big part of the campaign is to make sure business premises are covid-secure and that staff and customers continue to follow the safety measures.

We have put together some resources, which you are very welcome to download and use:

The #LoveLocal This Christmas campaign is supported by the Reopening High Streets Safely project, funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
