Whatever you need, from fresh food to birthday cards, gifts or clothes, our traders have you covered.

But in turn they need your help.

It’s been a tough year, with coronavirus and internet shopping taking its toll.

And with Christmas on the horizon they need your support.

Today, the Dunmow Broadcast is launching its #ShopLocal campaign.

We will be highlighting businesses and services, sharing the good work that is going on around us.

Every single interaction with a local business helps. It also has an unseen domino effect of community support – these businesses are paying staff wages, for services such as accountancy work, and so the list goes on.

You may also want to watch:

We can’t afford to be complacent – we need these businesses to stay open.

So please help. It really is within your power to make a difference.
