Nantwich town centre (1)

Dear Editor
Wherever possible I implore your readership to please continue to support small businesses during England’s second national lockdown.

This may be via click & collect or delivery, takeaway services, buying gift cards, online classes, virtual markets, and shopping online.

If you love somewhere and want it to be around for a long time, it’s a huge part down to you as an individual to make that happen.

All independent businesses rely 100% on your custom.

Therefore, please keep it local, as once this is all over the high street must survive.

If you don’t use something you will lose it. If you don’t visit independents, they will close down.

Thank you for your continued support.

PS. I hope Cheshire East Council consider helping small businesses by scrapping parking charges during the second national lockdown.

    With the exception of a few businesses, I don’t really think some business people have been that proactive in promoting their business V on line shopping.
    When I owned a retail premises I had details of every client over the years, so I was able to promote the business all year with mail shots, phone calls etc. Now we have Facebook and other social media, which is a brilliant way of connecting to customers in lock down. Very few have bothered from what I can see in this town, which is alarming with Christmas weeks away. Where are the Hampers of goodies, where are the home deliveries?, the click and collect, take away doesn’t have to be just food.

  2. It’s a nice idea, Jonathan, but Cheshire East Council will not be able to afford it as they’re already “bending over backwards” to ensure that our impoverished brethren in Prestbury can continue to flock in their Ferraris, park their Porsches, meander in their Maseratis safe in the knowledge that it won’t cost them a penny to park! They must be really grateful for the Council’s generosity.
    P.S. Don’t ask about the people of Poynton in their Peugeots, the chaps in Congleton in their Chryslers and the boys of Bollington in their Bentleys!
