The impact the coronavirus has had on all our lives has been huge.
We went from going about our daily lives to suddenly being on lockdown with very stringent rules now in place.
The Government rules have made it incredibly difficult for our independent businesses to thrive in the way that are used to.
And many of our favourite pubs, restaurants, bars, clubs and shops in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire have been forced to close as a result of the measures.
There is little to indicate when business will return to normal – and that can be deeply unsettling for owners.
To help our local businesses during these troubled times, here at Stoke-on-TrentLive, we want to give something back.
For an hour on Thursday (April 2), we will be launching #ThereWithYou hour on Twitter between 4pm and 5pm.
During that time, we will retweet anything you tweet using #ThereWithYou from the StokeonTrentLive Twitter account to our 82,000 followers.
We want to help you and your business – no matter how big or small – so tweet with us.
And don’t forget we are #ThereWithYou.
