As Mayor of Wotton-under-Edge, I am writing on behalf of the Town Council to express my thanks to all the traders in the town who were able to remain open during the lock-down period and provide an essential service to the community.

As the Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed it will be more important than ever to give business to our high street shops and help sustain them in this difficult financial climate.

I am sure that all residents who have relied on these vital local services will wish to join me in showing our appreciation and support, hopefully, by continuing to shop locally.

Think Local. Shop Local!

Cllr Roger Claydon OBE
