One of the best ways we can band together in Eastbourne and Willingdon is to ensure that we queue apart when we’re in our local shops.
That’s why we’ve been working closely with corner shops to develop our newest initiative: #EBtogether queue markers.
These special stickers are placed on shop floors, two metres apart, to help guide shoppers to queue a safe distance apart. A simple but effective way to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.
The response from shops and shoppers alike has been incredible! Shopkeepers are telling us that they’re now better able to manage their queues, and shoppers report feeling more safe when buying essentials.
This is what #EBtogether is all about - working with people right across our community to achieve the best for Eastbourne and Willingdon.
Can you help to spot small shops where #EBtogether queue markers might be needed?
We can arrange to get some to you so that you can offer them to your local shop, and help prevent the spread of the virus. Do let us know here and we'll be in touch.
