Sturminster – Still OPEN for business

Unlike the lockdown earlier this year, many of our local businesses are still able to trade and to help you to easily find their contact details we have listed them below.

So whatever you may need over the forthcoming weeks, you’re sure to find it here in Sturminster Newton.  Takeaway Cream Teas from The Stur of the Moment, home delivered Loaf & Larder food essentials from Olives et Al, electrical goods delivered and fitted by E B Marsh & Son and, of course, continued access to our daily staples provided by Holebrooks, Root & Vine, Oxfords and Candy’s.  There’s too many to individually highlight here but they all need your support more than ever.  For some, the doors may be closed, but this long list shows the extent of how many continue to operate.  Take a look at their online offers and when it’s time to take your daily walk you’ll be further enticed by the wonderful displays currently seen through their shop windows.
