Adapting local business in the time of COVID-19
Our community has shown great strength and resilience in the face of this global pandemic, however, this year has been extremely tough for local businesses. Your support is needed now, more than ever, to keep Watlington wonderful by shopping small, shopping local and shopping independent. Give Amazon the boot this year and support your local retailers instead. Below you will find details of how our local businesses have adapted to government restrictions under lockdown and beyond.
