Covid-19 “Tell Us” Poster

A keyboard warrior isn’t going to help anyone!

As the next phase of relaxation of the lock-down rules come in and commercial premises start to re-open we want to encourage everyone to work together to keep us all safe.

Feel free to download and display our “Don’t tweet, tell us” poster to display in your premises.
