Think #localfirst to support our local shops

Great to visit and enjoy a delicious coffee from The Little Deli in Sidmouth. They’ve recently opened for the first time and they are already popular! Good to see much of the town #OpenForBusiness. Think #localfirst, support our local shops and protect jobs.

Budleigh is open for business!

Budleigh is #OpenForBusiness. It was valuable to speak to shopkeepers who stayed open throughout lockdown or re-opened last week. Great to see a new business working hard to open for the first time too! Let’s think #localfirst, support our local shops and protect jobs.
