Happy New Year

Whilst a further lockdown will inflict further damage on our independent businesses, we recognise that it is important that we keep going and we look forward to the summer with hope and optimism for a return to our normal lives.

Happy New Year from Bawtry Retail Association – Well, it’s fair to say that 2021 hasn’t quite started the way we hoped it would.

Our retailers did enjoy a good Christmas and for that we thank you sincerely. Sadly, now all our non-essential shops are closed however many are offering an online and click & collect service.

The hospitality sector has been severely affected by the pandemic and our bars, cafes and restaurants remain closed although some are offering takeaway services which continue to be well supported. The businesses that are permitted to open continue to have all the necessary COVID secure measures in place to keep you and their staff safe.

In this difficult time we are particularly delighted to welcome on board some new members; Bare Skin Philosophy, Brambles Bakes Pet Bakery and Navy Educate Training and look forward to getting to know them just as soon as we can.

In the meantime, please continue to support local, remember that we are here for you and Be Kind.

Stay safe everyone and we look forward to a bright, busy and bustling Bawtry one day very soon.
