We’re celebrating Love Parks Week - Friday 23 July - Sunday 1 August 2021
“I appreciate the Covid Safe Business Scheme coming into our neighbourhood. As an independent shop I have worked very hard from the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic to adapt and provide a safe place to shop."
“The Covid-safe businesses scheme has given our service users the confidence to return to the high street knowing social distancing measures and safe practices are taking place.
“It’s important for everyone to feel safe, to understand what’s required to keep everything working and to know that the council are working hard to maintain and support the local community.”
The Past Caring shop team cares a great deal about being a Covid Safe Business!
