Buy and eat local 

Warwickshire has a superb array of shops and suppliers, employing thousands of local people. They are often the lifeblood of our towns, villages and local communities. 

They are counting on you to support them after the recent closures and lockdowns.  Please make that extra effort to seek them out online or by phone as well as visit them in person. You’ll find many are happy to deliver or offer takeaway and click and collect services. 

If everyone over the age of 16 in Warwickshire spends just £10 each week with a local business this would put £5 million back into the local economy which helps businesses keep running and people in jobs - what's not to love about shopping local?

#Warksmas

Tips for shopping safely

  • Keep to the government guidelines at all times including social distancing and handwashing.
  • Plan your journey – cycle or walk if you can – better for your health and the environment – a win-win!
  • Parking – if you need to drive, try to park further out.
  • Be patient – leave lots of time to get about and be mindful of those around you.
  • No shortcuts – it may be tempting to get close to people but wait in line for your click and collect at non essential retail.
  • Minimise contact with surfaces – use contactless and resist the urge to squidge the fluffy cushion in supermarkets if you aren’t going to buy it!
  • Be kind – every essential shop is different so it may take a little time to get things right.
  • Support your high street online – many of your local non essential businesses now offer delivery and click’n’collect. Make a conscious effort to research them or ask around for recommendations.
