Starting a new business can be daunting at any time, even more so during a pandemic. However the coronavirus lockdown gave Louisa the impetus and time she needed to start a new venture, The Didcot Pet Hotel.
With the further easing of the lockdown this weekend I’ve drawn up a list of shops, restaurants and pubs that are open again in Didcot.
Whilst it’s great that Didcot’s Orchard Centre offers big name shopping remember to support local businesses when you’re Christmas shopping in and around Didcot.
Didcot is often slated for its charity shops. But why? They offer unique items, help a charity, stop items going to landfill and, for some, are a lifeline.
Each charity shop in Didcot offers something slightly different; be it price, quality or quantity of items. I’ve popped into all of them recently and penned my thoughts about the shopping experience below.
