High streets in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch have long been a source of unique, specialist and independent traders, and many have gone above and beyond during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Bournemouth Echo:


Some have adapted, with many restaurants offering a takeaway or pick up service, while others have embraced the power of social media or have even become part of the nation's army of helpers in their community.

Even at the height of the pandemic, there are a number of traders across our patch who have been providing their customers with the best possible service.

And as the lockdown is eased, more and more traders are opening their doors and welcoming us into their shops and pubs!

So at the Bournemouth Echo, we are asking you to nominate your firm favourite!
