#goRyedale #goYork

Our community groups, charities, and businesses are second-to-none, and the services they offer during these strange times are invaluable.

But they will not be around unless we give something back. It is therefore crucial that we continue to support our local businesses by shopping local, and our charities and groups by attending all their various going-ons and fundraising activities. This is why the Handy Mag is saying #goRyedale and #goYork.

You can search for local businesses and services on our online Handy Mag Business Directory:

If you have some COVID-related community news, or are a business that is reopening, *please* get in touch.

Tel: 01653 495015  e: nicky@thehandymag.co.uk or marianne@thehandymag.co.uk.
