After Covid 19 and the lock downs a lot of small businesses have suffered losses or have had to close some aspects of their services or they have closed down altogether.

Many owners have had to make some really hard decisions that have affected their families and livelihoods.

In light of all these there have also been some beautiful relationships that have formed between the community and local businesses.

Here, we hope to connect local businesses with each other and hopefully create an ongoing partnership between them.
We also encourage our residents to support our local businesses.
Thank you.
