Protect lives & livelihoods

Written by on February 23, 2021

With light at the end of the tunnel, it is still vital that we continue to support our local businesses and protect the wider community.

As part of Rushmoor Borough Council’s ‘Shop Safe. Shop Local.’ campaign, a short poem-based video was created to highlight the ongoing need to support our local businesses. Owners and employees took part in the film to let the community know that they are very much still trading in some capacity despite the current circumstances. Aldershot businesses included The Glasses Shop, Beds n Furniture, China Oriental Supermarket and Caffe Macchiato who have adapted to ensure we can all shop safely whether by offering click & collect, delivery or simply by providing a safer essential shopping environment.

The piece went live on social media on 12th February alongside a version for Farnborough. At the time this article was written, the films had a combined reach of over 16.5k people which, we believe just shows what an amazing community we are part of.
