With more easing of Coronavirus restrictions to come into effect from this Monday, it is so important to be mindful, and as supportive as possible, of our local excellent businesses. These difficult times are slowly becoming easier, and more normal, for these businesses as the economy, local residents and workforce ‘light up’, but most importantly if their community gets behind them.
The Jetty precinct, where our office is situated, is the home of several excellent cafes, bars, restaurants and a locally-owned supermarket, all of whom have been heavily affected during the last two months. But it is so good to see their smiling faces now “back on the job”, giving us all the more reason to continually frequent these places to buy coffee, enjoy lunch, have a glass of wine at close of business, and pick up our milk and teabags. A strong, supportive, local community will help with the recovery of our local economy.
