Shop Local Online
During these unprecedented times, we want to promote shopping local and all the ways there are to support local businesses. We are creating a section of our website to link directly to your business on line shopping offer, and will be promoting this via our social channels. If you are a small/medium sized business which is a food, drink, retail, tourism experience or leisure service business located in East Yorkshire and are offering delivery, click and collect, on-line, takeaway services and vouchers, and would like to be featured, please send an image and link to your online shop to
