The Spring edition of the Coxhoe Chronicle featured an article on Coxhoe’s ‘magic mile’.
The article was written just as the lockdown hit us. Some businesses have been forced to close as a result of the virus lockdown. Others are continuing to provide goods and services even, in some cases, with reduced capacity.
We know businesses are working together and evolving in efforts to provide for the community and in some cases to survive difficult times. Seventeen, for example, is doing a takeaway service and are working with ‘Wing and a Prayer.’ The latter is providing cards with Seventeen’s take away afternoon teas and lunches, while preparing for reopening with a mail ordering service which has achieved 1,000 orders for their base of 38 local businesses. Adore is doing a postal service. Our food shops, including Coates butchers are keeping us fed in difficult circumstances. Keep it green are still looking after lawns, Bonsai Bon Bon’s are delivering our sweets and Platinum Physiotherapy are providing online classes, some free. These are just some examples of our businesses responding at a time of lockdown.
As a Parish Council we are unable to advertise individual businesses although we celebrate them in our Local Business and Traders page. Many businesses have their own websites or business pages. If you want to find out what they are offering look there.
Coxhoe Parish Council is proud of and salutes our local businesses! We encourage everyone to shop local where you can.
