“It was our ethos from the start to re-use things, so it didn’t all just go in the bin and nothing was one use. We have a responsibility to make sure that we’re not adding to the mess of everything.

“I think it all shows our community spirit, that everyone is doing it and is on the same page. I see lots of stickers in windows in the town and I think shoppers are getting a different feel from the business that are trying to do something thoughtful”
