We know how hard local businesses are working to stay open during the current Coronavirus pandemic.

Many business owners are adapting to try and survive these incredibly difficult times.

The Bromsgrove Advertiser is determined to support our local community and so we have launched #stillopeninBromsgrove to highlight those local businesses that are still open.

Here are some of those businesses that have contacted us.

Like all local newspapers up and down the country, the Bromsgrove Advertiser is #Therewithyou

If you want your business mentioned in the paper and online email stephanie.preece@newsquest.co.uk

Kim Lennard

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.  I continue to work and support people with their mental health.  I am doing this in a number of ways; face to face appointments where it is safe to do so and whilst the Government allows free movement, Skype appointments, telephone consultations, and via WhatsApp.

I am also holding an online mental health group on Friday, April 3, from 1pm - 2pm.  If there is enough interest in this online support I will continue to run these sessions. Attendance is free.  Anyone who is interested in attending the online group can contact me on 07788 543729 or kim_lennard@yahoo.co.uk

Hoyti Toyti Toy shop

Blimey it’s tough out here at the moment! We’ve been putting our heads together with other traders to try and think of ways to keep trade going whilst people are staying away from the high street. Whilst we can, we are offering a personal shopping service and same day, free delivery. We’re fully up to speed with technology so can show you the shop via FaceTime video , WhatsApp or traditional text / call. Please support us and other local Bromsgrove businesses. We won’t be getting SSP or government bailouts.

Redditch Advertiser:

Bromsgrove Barbershop

As there is a growing concern with hygiene because of the coronavirus, we would like to put clients minds at ease to reassure them that cleanliness is our main objective which means surfaces cleaned after every use, hand sanitiser at the desk, towels and gowns are always cleaned after every use.

Business is open as usual and will stay that way until the government announces otherwise.

High Street Bromsgrove B618AQ

Redditch Advertiser:

Naomi Louise Lashes & Brows

I am still open. I am located at the top end of Worcester Road - opposite Bayleys bar. I adhere to full hygiene regulations as part of my daily routine and all tools are sanitised between clients always anyway but given the severity of the recent situation we are finding ourselves in, I am giving myself longer between clients to carry out a deeper clean and requesting my clients pay online upon booking or by card or Paypal at the time of their appointment. I run my lash room from a building with minimal people coming and going.

DM PRIVATE HIRE/TAXIS

DM PRIVATE HIRE/TAXIS are about to be hit pretty hard as 99% of our work is airport transfers.

However we’ve had numerous people asking if we’d assist with shorter journeys and to help with hospital appointments, shopping trips etc. Also there is a concern that trains may stop running or be less frequent than normal. A number of people have asked if we can assist with their work travel to Birmingham and Worcester if this is the case.

We are happy to assist in any way we can, especially the elderly and vulnerable.

Please do not hesitate to contact us on 07929277991 / https://www.facebook.com/DMPRIVATEHIRE/
