Thanks for choosing to support local! We love to see our community doing their bit to keep each other afloat when things get tough. This page was set up to help spread the word about locals doing good things during lockdown. While it's still active, we aren't taking any more submissions for this page now that things are returning to normal.

We all need to do our bit.
Exercise social distancing. Seriously — do. Eat in. Dial-a-dinner. Keep well. Shop very small business online. Buy a gift voucher. Donate, don’t hoard. And support our local cafes, restaurants, farm gates, general stores, wineries, breweries and local retailers on the Ninch in alternative ways, because they need us now, more than ever.
We’re a region with plenty to offer — let’s keep our neighbours afloat.
With the story changing frequently please refer to businesses themselves for best practice, and keep inline with the latest government regulations and policies.
