Will now be available to spend through to Christmas
Aim of scheme is to get local high streets busy again
The £20 ShopLocal voucher offer from Hounslow Council has been extended until Christmas Eve.
Launched in August, the scheme aims to support the local economy and help independent businesses to recover from the pandemic.
Funded by the Governments COVID-19 Additional Restrictions Grant, over £430,000 has been spent by residents across the borough at more than 400 participating businesses.
Any households that haven’t yet spent their voucher yet will receive another copy of the voucher code letter in case the original has been lost or damaged since the launch.
The unique QR code is the same and will still only be valid to spend once.
Local businesses participating in the scheme include cafes, cinemas, restaurants, health and wellbeing organisations, laundrettes plus many more. Participating businesses can be located on an interactive map so you can easily find where to spend the voucher.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
