Nominations for Wirral “High Street Heroes” poured in for hundreds of independent shops that went above and beyond during lockdown, Wirral Council has said.
Wirral Council asked residents to nominate small high street businesses who were at the beating heart of their communities, delivering food and essentials to shielding residents while providing a cheerful face during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wirral Council said, “After the difficult time they have been through, there is no doubt that all Wirral’s businesses deserve to be labeled ‘High Street Heroes’ but 17 have been chosen to be the face of the new campaign, encouraging residents to support their local businesses.”
As ever, it is important to support local independent businesses, but especially during these hard times in the run-up to Christmas. Here are the 17 that were chosen:
How you can help
These 17 amazing businesses are just the tip of the iceberg, with many more Wirral businesses doing extraordinary things during lockdown. The best way you can help is to support all your local businesses, not just those listed above. They’ve had a tough time in 2020 and need your custom more than ever.
All of the businesses listed above are COVID-secure and have introduced many measures to ensure their customers are safe, including face masks, social distancing and rules about the number of people who can be in their premises.
