During this time of uncertainty and the dreaded C-word being thrown around, it's important to show support for local businesses. 

Many places are offering the option to purchase gift vouchers and use them at a later date so they can still get cash-flow through the door. 

Others who offer fitness or dance classes as their livelihood are switching to online services instead. 

Some of the small businesses who are offering vouchers or alternative services are: 

DanzFusion, Jenna Kane has switched to online classes while she's needed to close down her studio. For more information, you can contact her at DanzFusion on Facebook. 

EmilyMarieBeauty, an eyelash technician has decided to offer gift vouchers for her services. You can contact her on Instagram at @EmilyMarieBeauty or send her a message at 07730562924, and she'll post them out to you. 

Similarly, Sharpe Faces are offering gift vouchers for makeup appointments, which may be worth doing if you're planning on getting your makeup done at any point in the year. To purchase a voucher, contact them on Instagram at @sharpefaces. 

The Willow Cafe & Function Suite in Central Park opened mere months ago, but they're still offering takeaway services through a hatch so they're able to be picked up. If you want to order with them, call them on 01733 563634 or email

BakesByChelsea is offering vouchers for brownies once the quarantine is over. You can get in touch with her on Instagram at @bakesbychelsea.
