Local Buyers Club launches Virtual Neighbourhoods as a lifeline during lockdown

Virtual Neighbourhoods are rolling out across London to help people find out which small businesses are providing vital supplies during the coronavirus lockdown.

Area by area, the new website www.myvirtualneighbourhood.com highlights local businesses offering home delivery of essentials (and treats) - it’s proving to be a real lifeline to residents stuck at home and is generating much-needed trade for shops and restaurants fighting to survive.

The public is being urged to get behind it and send in details of businesses making self-isolation easier.

The site has been set up by the team behind the Local Buyers Club, which has been championing independent businesses for the past two years.
