These are difficult times for everyone, especially those trying to run a small local business.

As a retired person, I often have a coffee or lunch when I am out, and hope to do so in the not too distant future.

There will be a difference however. I won't be having a coffee in a supermarket, Costas, Nero, Debenhams or Dunelm.

I will be supporting my local outlets such as Ascari, and Cafe Miro.

Ascari has been a part of Hereford for many years.

Coronavirus could be the death of many businesses.

Support your local cafe at the earliest opportunity.
