Over the past 12 months of lockdown, our local shops and businesses have been there for the community more than ever, offering residents a lifeline with home deliveries and online events to tackle the lockdown blues. Now that schools have reopened, and we will be able to meet with one person outdoors from 29th March hopefully the gradual easing of lockdown measures will put a spring back into our step.

Some of our highlight this month include:

  • Arnold Lodge has refurbished their ballroom, bar and restaurant ready for when they can host events again.
  • Revelicious celebrated their fifth anniversary for their Churchside Arcade shop.
  • The Annex Studios celebrated their second anniversary of their salon opening in Sheep Street.
  • Rugby Art Gallery & Museum added the Rugby Open 2020 online and made original artworks from the exhibition available to purchase from the Visitor Centre shop.
