Second National Lockdown

 

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this email, following the PM’s announcement this evening.

The latest updates can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november?priority-taxon=774cee22-d896-44c1-a611-e3109cce8eae

I know this will be devastating news for a lot of you and I will try and offer help and support.

However, there is a glimmer of light for some, in that Click and Collect can still operate.  Whilst the guidance states “Non-essential retail can remain open for delivery to customers and click-and-collect” we are still awaiting clarification of what will constitute a legally allowable click and collect service (probably prepaid online or over the phone).  However, we want to get ahead of the curve with preparing a business listing.

We need to make sure we tell the local community if you are intending to operate a click/phone and collect system or if you will be doing deliveries. I have set up a ‘Business Listing for Covid-19’ page again on the Discover Penrith website.

Please download and complete the form below and return it to admin@penrithbid.co.uk  and I will then update the details to the Discover Penrith website at https://www.discoverpenrith.co.uk/PenrithCovidUpdate/
