Christopher Wilson of Love Letchworth says: “There has never been a more important time to support our local shops and businesses. Many of them have had to adapt quickly to our ‘new normal’ and they’ve risen to the challenge to help you get through whatever the next few weeks or months brings. Show them a bit of love now – and after this is all over.”
