Collecting for families across Essex

There are many families struggling to get by at the moment, with the economic hardships of the coronavirus pandemic combining with the added financial pressures of preparing for Christmas. 

To support them, each of our stores across Essex are now donating baskets of shopping to local charities who can direct them to those most in need - such as parish councils, foodbanks, volunteer groups, and those helping the homeless - in a project we're calling #GiveALittleSomething. 

Can I live with someone with COVID and not catch it?

There is a lot of advice out there telling you how to avoid catching or spreading the coronavirus, but with millions of people already diagnosed with the virus millions more will be living with someone who already has it. So, what can you do to avoid catching the coronavirus if you share a house with, or are caring for, someone who has already caught it?

Can I have tradespeople in my house?

Last week, the Essex Chronicle provided some very useful clarification regarding government rules surrounding tradespeople - specifically, can you let them into your home during lockdown? Many homeowners are using this time, and the money from cancelled holidays, to renovate or make home improvements. Emergency repairs are also increasingly common as the temperatures begin to drop. So what is allowed, and what is the best way to stay safe with workers close by?
