Most of us were glad to see the back of 2020 and start the New Year with the promise of vaccination and recovery.
Last year was tough for many local residents – including for the thousands who either contracted Covid or lost loved ones to the virus, and the many more who struggled to manage self-isolation, work and childcare, or keep businesses afloat through successive lockdowns and ever-changing trading restrictions.
Winchester District is blessed with some fantastic small, independent shops and eateries. Over the past year, many of have gone the extra mile in supporting our community – running essential supplies to those self-isolating, donating unwanted produce, and offering new click-and-collect services.
As we begin the New Year in lockdown, we thought it might be useful to list local food and catering businesses offering home delivery and click & collect. It’s not exhaustive but, hopefully, it’s a starting point if you’re looking to support local businesses in lockdown.
