THE Gazette and Herald and Wiltshire Times are doing their best to help local people and local businesses by bringing you information on local firms which are staying open during the coronavirus crisis, offering a new takeaway service, or running direct delivery to people so they can self isolate and stay safe at home while living their daily lives.

All these firms are run by, and staffed by, local people, who deserve a great big thank you for their dedication and hard work. Despite the Government's advice, not all of us can work from home, and these people are among them.

So here's the first few firms who have told us what they are doing to help: to add your business' name and details to it, contact us on or
