As businesses begin to reopen, one council has taken a proactive step to aid local businesses as they raise the shutters on the ‘new normal’. Cheryl and Brendan Duffy of wetcleaning specialist Acorns of Lancashire in Accrington, explained the thinking behind the council campaign #Think Hyndburn.
“Our local council has made a video promoting the return to the High Street after lockdown. This message is primarily from the leader of our local council, Miles Parkinson, and the Member of Parliament for Hyndburn and Haslingden, Sara Britcliffe,” said Brendan Duffy.
“While it is a great profile for our business, it also supports local independent businesses in the area. It is also a reflection of the lengths we have had to go to protect our customers and staff.”
Cheryl Duffy said: “We have a cleaning (sanitisation) station for customers, sneeze screens and social distancing in place.” She added that she hoped the video would encourage people to shop local, stay local and recycle the pound the locally.
Sarah Britcliffe MP, commented that it was only right to support businesses that had supported the Government and local council in their measures during the pandemic lockdown.
