Let’s Support Local Businesses #1

Let’s Support Local Businesses #1

As we all know, a lot of local businesses are going through a difficult time at the moment. Although we may not be able to visit restaurants or market stalls, many of these businesses have started offering new services, such as takeaway deliveries, or parcels to collect.

Here at Melanie Estates, we want to support our local community as much as possible. Therefore we are starting a small blog series called “Let’s Support Local Businesses” where we will share the details of services that may be of interest to our readers.

Even if you are unable to purchase from these sellers at the moment, a small like or share of their social media accounts might help to encourage some new business.

(All of the below information is accurate to the best of our knowledge, however we advise that you contact the company directly for confirmation.)
