Supporting Chiswick during lockdown

Chiswick residents are rightly taking Tier 4 and lockdown extremely seriously. Many essential retail shops, shops that are closed but allowed to offer click and collect, and cafes and restaurants that are allowed to trade for takeaway and delivery, are reporting that business is significantly lower – we aren’t ordering takeaways or shopping from our local shops as much as we did in previous lockdowns. Of course, we don’t want to encourage any behaviour that puts us at greater risk of catching or transmitting COVID-19 but if you are shopping online, or ordering takeaway food, please consider buying from your local independents before you turn to larger operators or the chains.  

Here’s a road by road list, compiled by the Chiswick Shops Task Force, of independent shops, cafes and restaurants as a reminder.

The situation is volatile and dynamic so some might not be open – but do plan to spend money with them when we get our lives back. (The list isn’t complete but is being updated.)
