Doing business during Covid-19:
Chipping Sodbury's businesses are all still here working as hard as we can to support our local community, in the hope they will do the same.
Click here or scroll down to see what Sodbury Chamber Members can do for you during this crisis.
"Here we are in Week 9 of restrictions – there are positive signs ahead providing everyone follows the guidance we are being given. Most importantly: Stay Well and Stay Safe and Stay Alert. We are now well into Spring (we seem to have missed April) and all the hedgerows and trees have now come into full life.
The things we have come to expect will start to happen: more shops opening, the chance to play golf, meeting a relative/friend is acceptable subject to the guidance terms. We will see a range of facilities gradually opening up during the coming weeks.
Please let us know as a business what plans you have going forward in order to keep our MySodbury link updated. On my visits to Town to collect post and do shopping a big thank you to the Butchers/Bakers/Chemist/Greengrocer/plus other Shops, Food outlets and Building Societies that have remained/reopened.
Jane Gauntlett the Chiropodist is open by appointment. Car Components in Horse Street is open. Other professional services Solicitors/Accountants/Estate Agents are available by appointment.
The situation is having an impact on everyone. Many thanks Claire for organising MySodbury. Finally from us the Chamber: “For Those Who Gave So Much, We Thank You“. "

The Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce has held its first virtual chamber meeting via Zoom, with 11 members taking part online.
Following the recent government announcement we thought it was a good time to check in with our members, make sure everyone is OK and have a discussion about lockdown issues.
It was also a good opportunity to update everyone on projects we are still working on including the 2021 Sodbury Calendar, the new Town Map showing retailers' locations and an update on the Summer Search, which we hope to hold as soon as safe to do so.
Michelle (one of the joint chairs) said: "It was lovely to see everyone and catch up with lockdown stories. Several of our members had great advice about finances, coping with lockdown and plans to reopen when allowed. We hope to hold another virtual meeting next month."
The photo shows the attendees in Zoom.
Sodbury Chamber of Commerce welcomes all Sodbury based businesses large or small.

As some of you may be aware Sodbury Chamber had started work on a new town map to help promote the businesses in town.
Despite the current crisis Justin our local graphic artist has been busy working away on detailed drawings of the High Street.
You can follow his progress via this link.
Justin says: "I can now proudly share the reason I’ve been quiet lately... I was recently commissioned by the Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce to produce a brand new Visit Chipping Sodbury town map as part of a joint venture with 29 design.
The town map I’m drawing will be used to promote all the amazing local businesses in the town.
Originally the map was planned to be launched this summer, but obviously recent crisis may change this. We hope to have the map ready for when the crisis is over.
In the meantime I’m going to share my progress and drawings using this #drawingchippingsodbury over the coming weeks of all the amazing and interesting buildings in Chipping Sodbury."
We will issue more details about the map when we are ready to launch. Stay safe everyone.
With Chipping Sodbury's Tourist Information Centre currently closed because of Covid-19, you can buy copies of Rocco the Rock Star for £7.99 from Artingstall's Butchers or online at www.roccotherockstar.com.
It's a local doggy tale with kindness at its core...
"Rocco the Rock Star" is the first in a series of sweet, heart-warming children's books based around the core values of kindness, patience and courage.
It's based on the true story of a local dog rescued from a rubbish tip in Romania, who thanks to a stranger's act of kindness began his 2,788 km journey to a safer, happier and more confident life in the fictional market town of Chipping Dogbury - based on the beautiful medieval market town of Chipping Sodbury.
The book is for a reading age of 7 to 11, but can be read to younger children who will be engaged by the lovely pictures and doggy adventures. A must for dog rescuers and dog lovers everywhere.
Throughout the series of books the characters of Rocco and his fellow pack members develop as they embark on various doggy adventures, which don't always go to plan.
The traditional high street features heavily as the authors endeavour to convey its charm and the positive characters that live and work hard to keep it going.
We would encourage you to visit your local high street and www.roccotherockstar.com to support all those involved and hopefully to purchase the first book "Rocco the Rock Star".
In the spirit of giving back, having received so much from rescue dogs, a percentage of profits from book sales will be donated to dog rescue charities worldwide.
If any schools would like copies of the book please do get in touch for volume discounts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hobbs House Bakery have installed new milk refill stations in their stores in Chipping Sodbury, Malmesbury and Gloucester Road, Bristol. Here's what they say:
"For £1 we are selling 1 litre of Organic Semi Skimmed milk from Chew Valley Dairy, just 20 miles away from our bakery. We are also selling 1 litre reusable glass bottles for £1.
We continually look for new ways to serve our communities better and listen to our customers concerns, we’re pleased to be able to offer our community a way to reduce their plastic waste and support local farmers.
We always try to improve our impact on the environment, continually reviewing all aspects of our business to ensure we remain as environmentally sustainable as possible, from shunning plastic bags wherever possible in favour of compostable wax bags, to using coffee cups made from 100% compostable materials.
The refillable milk means for us that we can stop using plastic bottles of milk in our bakery, shops and office.
We are really excited about this new initiative and look forward to saving many bottles of single use plastic from going to landfill.
