Coronavirus - Small Local Business Support

This is an extremely difficult time for everyone, particularly our small local businesses, and like many of us here in Swindon, I would like to do all that I can to support them.

The following information lists local businesses, the service they provide, if they are closed or currently open and if so, their hours of trading and contact details.

Let's make sure that as many people as possible know about our small local businesses so that we can support them at this difficult time and call on them when needed!

If you are a small local business and would like to be added to this page, please get in touch by emailing robert.buckland.mp@parliament.uk
