Keep buying  indie!

When we started work on the latest issue of our publication The Indie, no one had even heard of Coronavirus – but things move fast, and it is clear that there is bound to be significant disruption and hardship for everyone over the coming months. Looking further ahead, one of the very possible outcomes is that people and businesses will look to act in a more locally-focused way. Smaller supply chains, locally grown produce, travelling more responsibly and valuing what we have on our doorstep – which obviously includes our local independent businesses and people. Many are looking to help their communities and save their businesses by putting in place delivery services. We have put together this list - which as things stand - will be constantly changing and updating - to help them spread the word and also help those who are unable to get out. The list also includes those who with online shops and who offer vouchers/gift tokens - so you can support them now so they are there for you into the future. Keep well everyone.

This year my business will be 15, I’ve never experienced pressure like what we’re all feeling now. Tonight I held the team meeting I never thought I’d have to hold. Within minutes of the meeting it was clear I have the most amazing team of people working with me, who are dedicated to make it through this. I was overwhelmed by their support. I will stop at nothing to ensure their wages can be paid and their jobs are secure.
