Campaign launched in Charnwood to highlight safe local high streets

9 September 2020

Shop Safe, Shop Local – that’s the message from Charnwood Borough Council as it launches a campaign to support local high streets.

The Council, and partners, are calling on people to support their local high streets and reassure them that significant steps have been taken to ensure visitors are safe when shopping in the borough.

High streets have extra signage to remind people of the need for social distancing, barriers have been installed around Loughborough town centre to help with queuing and local businesses have introduced their own measures to ensure they are complying with the latest Covid-19 guidance.

Extra cleaning is also taking place in some areas and pubs, cafes and restaurants have introduced a range of measures including test and trace.

Over the coming months the Shop Safe, Shop Local campaign will be highlighting the steps taken to ensure our local high streets are safe places to visit. They are not only safe, but also great places to visit for shopping, eating and going out. View full article.
