The nation may be in lockdown but local shops, pubs and restaurants across Kent are still Open for Business.Here’s where you can shop and order locally - and support your community at the same time.
With people being urged to stay at home because of coronavirus, self isolation and social distancing is devastating businesses across the county.
But here’s how you can help your local community and yourself in the process!
Simply CLICK HERE to check out our Open for Business page - it's dedicated to letting you know the local firms based on your doorstep that are trying to help.
Many shopkeepers and family-run businesses you may know - some of whom have not traditionally offered online ordering before - are now opening their doors across the internet for the first time.
What's more, many restaurants, pubs and eateries are still open for takeaways and deliveries.
Are you in need of groceries or do you badly miss tucking into some quality Indian food or fish and chips?
Did you know that your local corner shop, butchers or green grocers is more likely to have things in stock than larger supermarket chains?
Telephoning orders or visiting smaller shops near where you live means that you can not only get what you need but also that you are helping your community at the same time.
