We’re lucky in the U.K. to have so many independent traders offering the highest quality foods and services in each of our communities.
With the COVID-19 lockdown currently in full force it can be difficult for local businesses to reach their loyal customers, and vice versa. We’ve all seen the immense pressure the supermarkets are under, and also the supreme efforts many local businesses are making to keep afloat.
We aim to help!
Our mission is to bridge that gap and offer an online marketplace where our local produce sellers, can list their menus or advertise their products or skills and keep us all informed of what is available and when.
The public at large will be able to place orders direct with ourselves which we will then immediately direct to the Trader.
The gap is then bridged.
From the comfort of locked-down homes, orders can be placed for Farm Produce, Beer or Pub/home cooked food. Plumbers or Electricians who may be able to help with the emergencies which will of course still happen can be easily reached. Tutors or Therapists can be easily engaged.
- Take away outlet
Or any other local independent trader currently able to trade.
We are determined to provide a service for local producers, suppliers and public without recourse to commissions or fees during the lockdown and subsequent economic re-start.
We do see this as a community project that can exist long after the lockdown. Our mission is to become a bridge between local business and their customers. A community hub / online supermarket solely for local, private traders and businesses. An additional route to market, an e-commerce site for all.
We want the-bridge.uk to become a one-stop shop for local customers for find local traders and services, and an outlet for you to market and sell your products or skills.
This project is still in the early stages; we have sourced and lined up all the relevant software and technology needed to make this work. Our time and personal investment has been, and continues to be ongoing to ensure our contribution to our community, and others around the UK.
