Shoppers in Hambleton are being urged to do their bit and take part in Shop Local Week to help local businesses rebuild after the coronavirus pandemic

The initiative, running from 10 – 16 August is part of the government's Enjoy Summer Safely campaign, encouraging people to get back to the ways of life they have missed — while following safety guidelines.

From popping into a local family-run bakery for a loaf of bread, or buying a quirky gift from an independent shop, by shopping locally people can help local business owners and local communities get back up and running.

To help Shop Local Week, there are eight reasons why customers should visit their local high street:

  • Help the high street and support the local economy
  • Save jobs and create even more
  • Great deals
  • A safe way to shop
  • Preserving the heart of the community
  • Spoilt for choice
  • A better shopping experience
  • Help the environment

The initiative backed by the district council is running a week long campaign on social media.

Residents can also take advantage of the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme at any participating establishment to get 50% off food and non-alcoholic drinks when you eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner). Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until 31 August. ·
