Covid-19: November Lockdown – Financial Support Update

Dear businesses

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Saturday confirming a 2nd nationwide lockdown, we are truly sorry to hear that many of our local businesses are again required to close and our thoughts are with you and your families during this tough time.

We know some of you are able to remain open as you offer essential services, and some have adapted your businesses during this pandemic to help you to remain trading in a different way to normal – this is true testament to the positivity and strength in our town.

Otley folk are resilient and our customers have a strong #shoplocal ethic so we feel confident that our town will again come together and bounce back as soon as we are able to fully re-open. But as ever, we are here to help in any way we can, so please continue to feed any thoughts or ideas back to us on how we can support you.

Please read the information that is applicable to you and don’t hesitate to contact me at if you have any questions and either myself or one of our directors will do our best to answer them.
