Local Businesses – Newstead (covid19 edition)

by Samantha MacKenzie

With the current covid19 situation our world is in, it’s time for our communities to come together and really look out for each other. While local businesses are struggling, those of us in a position to support them most definitely should. In turn, the businesses that are in a position to keep going need to help everyone where they can.

One thing that we have seen during this time is our ability to change and adapt, make things work for us. We may need to stay away from each other but we can certainly connect! Below are a few things happening in the Newsteaed area. Super accessible to a lot of neighbourhoods!
