BCP Council, the Chamber and local businesses are encouraging everyone to support their local high street and boost the local economy by choosing to ‘Search and Shop Local’. With non-essential retail shops now closed we are reminding everyone to rediscover the magic of the local high street when shopping online, or rediscover safely those premises that are open and those who will reopen their doors when it is safe to do so.
