As you can imagine, we are extremely disappointed that, due to last night’s Covid-19 announcement, we will have to postpone Saturday’s Love Local Expo.
We plan to announce a new expo date once we have moved back to Alert Level 1, and we will keep you in the loop. We’ll hold your current position in the expo and once the new date is set you can let us know whether you will be able to join us. We have had media interest in this event and we will continue to promote and support your businesses, and Love Local, through our various channels.
Thanks for your patience and please stay safe.
