Support local People and businesses when you can.

Businesses, retailers and restaurants in West Somerset have had to temporarily shut down due to COVID-19, many people are struggling. This site is meant to be a resource for the residents of this area to find local spots to order from and support in any way possible. It is also designed to be a resource of information. Only together as a community can we hope to move forward in these tough times. #WSTogetherApart

business blog

Helping SME's and startups has always been a passion of mine. This month I started posting some articles on business sites outlining some ideas how local businesses continue trading during this difficult time. If you have any questions about anything outlined please don't hesitate to get in contact on james@tomatocreative.co.uk
