How can you help support a local business?

Buying vouchers is a great way to support your local businesses who may be doing it tough. You can save them for another time, or put them in a card as a gift.

Perhaps you’re in self-isolation, or you’re comfortable being out in public right now. Easy, do your shopping online with a local business, and have it delivered to your door.

Small businesses in your neighbourhood may be struggling the most. Support them now and they’ll still be here when the pandemic is over.

Possible supply issues will no doubt lead to frustration. But it’s not your local retailers fault, so please be patient and treat them nicely during this trying period.

Now might be perfect time to get some projects done at home. You can share the love by employing some local services to help.

When shopping in public, remember to practise common sense and observe and employ recommended hygiene and physical distance standards.









Local trusted journalism matters - now more than ever

As the Covid-19 pandemic brings the world into uncharted waters, Star Media journalists and photographers continue to report local stories that matter everyday - yours.

For more than 152 years our journalists have provided Cantabrians with local news that can be trusted. It’s more important now than ever to keep Cantabrians connected.

As our advertising has fallen during the pandemic, support from you our reader is crucial.

You can help us continue to provide local news you can trust simply by becoming a supporter.
