High streets in focus for #ShopSafelyInStaffs films


    A new video focusing on Stafford Borough’s high streets has been released online to help boost the local economy.

    Businesses across Stafford, Stone and Eccleshall showcased innovative measures to ensure the safety of staff and customers, while shoppers shared how they were able to #ShopSafelyinStaffs.

    The project is part of a drive by Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Growth Hub, working in partnership with Stafford Borough Council, to support residents returning to their high streets as the Government lockdown eases.

    The film is one of five featuring retailers and shoppers from 11 towns including Stafford, Stone, Eccleshall, Lichfield, Burntwood, Kidsgrove, Newcastle, Leek, Cheadle, Biddulph and Tamworth.

    “To boost confidence and support the local economy, we are now encouraging those businesses which have taken such steps to highlight what they have to offer and demonstrate how we can all #ShopSafelyInStaffs.”
