Many of our local businesses have worked amazingly hard to continue to provide products and services during lockdown as well as meeting needs and supporting the community in a variety of other ways - often on a voluntary basis.

The Scotland Loves Local campaign is a national initiative designed to encourage Scots to go back to their roots, think local first and support their local town centres safely and in line with public health guidelines. The outbreak of coronavirus has caused significant challenges for our town centres, high streets and local businesses. They have lost out on vital trade because they had to close to keep us safe. Many of them have gone to enormous lengths to support the most vulnerable people in our communities. As Scotland begins to ease lockdown restrictions and move into recovery, now is the time to support them to get back on their feet. However, we know coronavirus is still a significant risk to local communities and so it is important that people continue to follow the public health guidelines and take care.

It is vital that our communities repay these efforts and goodwill by supporting local businesses as we come out of lockdown to protect jobs and impact positively on the local economy. Please support our #LoveLocal Campaign!
