Businesses in Daventry District which have been required to close temporarily due to the lockdown are encouraged to apply for a Local Restrictions Support Grant.

The Government fund can provide grants of up to £3,000 to help small businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors manage during the 28-day lockdown period.

The types of business covered includes non-essential retail, leisure, personal care (such as hairdressers and nail salons), entertainment, sports facilities and hospitality. More »

To be eligible to apply, businesses must occupy a property on which they pay business rates, and must have been open and trading on 4 November 2020. They must have been required to close for at least four weeks because of the national lockdown, or have adapted their business to offer takeaway or a 'click and collect' service.

Three levels of grants are available depending on the rateable value of the business:

  • For properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under, grants will be £1,334 for the four weeks
  • For properties with a rateable value of more than £15,000 and below £51,000, grants will be £2,000 for the four weeks
  • For properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or over, grants will be £3,000 for the four weeks.

Daventry District Council is distributing the grant in the District and is urging eligible businesses to submit a claim as soon as they can.

Councillor Colin Morgan, Resource Portfolio Holder at Daventry District Council said: "Local businesses are the lifeblood our communities and the local economy, and our staff have been working hard since the beginning of the pandemic to ensure they receive the Government funding support that they are entitled to.

Local Grocers makes it easier for you to continue to support your local community while feeding your family delicious food.

David, Local Grocers' founder and a Pitsford resident, said 'I started Local Grocers because I truly believe in the power of shopping local to improve our diets, our community and our environment. The idea came out of a personal need; my partner and I love shopping local but we don't have time to go around 5 different stores to get our weekly shop so I built Local Grocers to solve that problem!'

'One of the amazing things to have come out of Local Grocers is the selection of specialist local products that our partners stock,' says the young founder. 'Many of these products simply aren't available elsewhere online and the quality of the food is exceptional.'

Local Grocers believe in sustainability, so they're proud to announce their partnership with Re, Northamptonshire's first and largest refillable store for all your dried goods and ecological supplies.
