Here we go again!
I have really mixed feelings about this lockdown if I’m being honest after speaking to a good friend recently who has had the virus through no fault of their own (and who had a really awful time with it) – so I really do understand why we are going into lockdown number 2 at this time. This virus is not just a ‘bad flu’ – its way more than that and we know that not everyone has observed the rules, hence why we are where we are. Lockdown number 1 had some benefits in terms of financial support, bonus time spent with people we love the most and some bouts of very good weather. Lockdown number 2 has little benefit apart from controlling the virus, which is currently out of control. I get it.
We also know how much our local retail, leisure and hospitality sector need our support – especially over the next four weeks and beyond …
Our local businesses did such a good job with their reopening after lockdown number 1, and now they have to close again for lockdown number 2. We all know the drill by now, they need our support and we love what they do, so ordering takeaway a couple of times a week for example is a win win for everyone.
We are busy creating a number of Guides, Features and Reviews including The Best Takeaways in Town as well as our ‘Shop Local’ Christmas Gift Guide and a Gift Vouchers guide for the best dining experiences in Chester. We are also delighted to be supporting the Chester Gift Card from Chester BID, and we’ll be encouraging you all to give the Gift of Chester this year instead of giving it to A****n!
Whatever you fancy, one of our fabulous local businesses will be serving it, making it or delivering it – and you know we only work with the best local brands – so you can be sure its going to be great quality and great value too.
We will be updating our lists continually so all you need to do is sit back, make your choice and order it for collection or delivery. Every one of our entries has a write up by us, a link to order and a current image.
With love from Izzy and Katie x
