Cllr Peter Lamb, Labour Leader of Crawley Borough Council, has launched a campaign encouraging online shoppers to support local small businesses that have moved online during the coronavirus lockdown.
Speaking about the campaign, Cllr Lamb said:
“Over recent weeks, we have heard that Crawley’s economy has been hit harder than any other in the country. Yet, even now, we can see green shoots of growth, with more Crawley businesses going online than ever before. While we can’t support local companies with our physical footfall right now, we can offer then digital footfall to support them through this difficult time. I would encourage every resident to do their bit to help sustain local businesses online, until they can find their feet again.”
“If you know a Crawley business that is still trading online and you want to help support our town, then please do let people know about them by using the #CrawleyOnline hashtag.”
