This all feels very wartime, but as things stand, our local shops are facing a major shortfall in income.
Due to the lack of passing trade, they are reporting 75% less takings, the Junction is a ghost town, there is almost no one in the centre.
Please can I make a special request to anyone that reads this that rather than make your weekly / daily shop at a large supermarket, can you take the chance to save some petrol and buy from our local shops.
They really need the trade, and if this carries on until March we may well see some go bust.
Thanks for your support.
