BID Spotlight: Supporting the city centre through lockdown 2

Just because we’re back under restrictions doesn’t mean we can’t support our local businesses. Over the coming weeks we will be spotlighting businesses that are open and delivering everything from essentials to special treats to help get you through. We’ll even have some tips on local businesses who are helping you get on top of your xmas shopping from home.

As the first weekend of lockdown comes around we’re focusing on where you can get hold of some of your essential lockdown must haves.
