It is hugely important that we all support our local shopping areas as much as possible. I have laid down an Early Day Motion highlighting the important work of the Scotland's Towns Partnership with the support of the Scottish Government on the excellent Scotland Loves Local campaign, which calls on us to think local first.
Our local businesses need our support. There are many excellent local businesses in all areas of East Renfrewshire. They are at the heart of our community, and have focussed on delivering the best possible service to us since the Covid pandemic hit. Wherever we can, it makes a significant difference to give them our support, so they can sustain and continue to play their vital part in our local economy.
