Buy Local, Urges Plaid Cymru Leader

07/05/2020

Caerphilly Plaid Cymru group leader Colin Mann has backed calls urging people to buy local as the coronavirus pandemic hits business hard.

Councillor Colin Mann was speaking as Plaid Cymru launched its #ImBuyingLocal campaign.

He said: “At this time of crisis, local businesses, which are the lifeblood of communities in Caerphilly county need our support.

“Many have had to take the tough decision to close for safety reasons while others have continued to remain open supplying the vulnerable with food and other items. I hope people feel able to support those shops and businesses going the extra mile in the coronavirus crisis.

“We need these local businesses to survive the pandemic and thrive in the future when we get back to normal. In my own experience some goods have been available in local shops which were out of stock in the supermarkets ,” added Councillor Colin Mann, who represents Llanbradach ward.
