A GROUP of traders is helping keep the community connected during the coronavirus crisis, helping residents find essential items.

The Barnards Green Traders Association has published leaflets offering residents the support of local shops.

Inside the leaflets, it says: “We hope you are keeping safe and well. Here in Barnards Green we realise just how important the community is to us and we do not wish for anyone to go without

during these difficult times. On the reverse of this leaflet you will find a list of some of the independent retailers that make up the Green and the services or products that they offer. Where possible, these businesses will try to help.

“You will find some shops that can be contacted directly for ordering and then those that can be contacted for an order through Barnard’s Green Post Office.

“If there is a product that you require that is not listed overleaf, please still ask and we will do our best within reason to source it for you.”
