Important Update: As of 8pm on Monday 24 March the Government implemented lockdown measures meaning people are only permited to leave their house for food shopping, work if they cannot work from home and exercise once a day. Buisnesses offering delivery or collection may stay open, but each business will be responding to this news and planning their approach. This means the information in the blog may quickly become out-of-date, so please check with the individual business on their website or social media.
