Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 put a call out at the end of April to ask which of our members were still ‘open for business’ during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The quick responses were great to read! It demonstrates our resilience, determination and adaptability, even in difficult times.
We are really keen to support our local businesses during this challenging period and we thought that by putting together a comprehensive list then you would be able to take a quick look and shop local wherever you can.
Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 are really proud of the way our members work together to support each other and the wider community, we feel that this is an opportune time to increase that support and help each other weather the storm.
