Town Council announces social distanced Ludlow Market during #coronavirus (updated)

Ludlow Town council has now cancelled the market. Reduced stalls, non-food markets cancelled. But you can still get a cup of tea. That’s the future of Ludlow Market during the coronavirus crisis. This is vital. Not everyone wants to shop at a supermarket. Not everyone feels comfortable with crowded aisles and queues to the checkout. Many people prefer to buy from independent traders rather than the international retail giants. Ludlow Market will be a socially distanced market from Wednesday. Only every second stall used. I observed behaviour in town today. It was very different from that even on Saturday. People stood at a respectful distance.

The Ludlow Food Bank at Rockspring will be central to our response to the #coronavirus crisis

We live in uncertain economic times. We already know of people in the hospitality industry who are being laid off. Other employees could eventually be affected. The Ludlow Food Bank already serves a lot of people who are struggling. The Covid-19 crisis makes it more important for the health of our community than ever. The Food Bank needs food. Tinned and dried food. Easy cook food. Long life. Daily essentials. Sanitary and cleaning products. Personal and household. And one of the best ways you can help with this is by making cash donations. The details of how to do so are below.
