The Hounslow pound - Keep it local this Christmas

Keep it local




Our ‘Keep it Local’ campaign supports local businesses in the run up to Christmas.

We are encouraging residents to do their Christmas shopping locally, as businesses can remain open under Tier 2 restrictions. But you must remember to wear a face covering when shopping.

‘Keep it local’ showcases independent businesses across the borough and encourages residents to support local businesses, including online, after a difficult year.

Spectators will be back again at the new Brentford Community Stadium on Wednesday 9th December, when Brentford Football Club take on Derby County Football Club. Good luck to the team! We hope the fans enjoy cheering on the team again.

To keep fans attending, we must avoid going into Tier 3. We need to tackle COVID-19 together and lower the infection rate. Remember to wash your hands, cover your face and keep a safe distance from others.
