Dorchester Chamber for Business President Peter Greenaway responds to the latest lockdown:
“The escalation in infections over the last few weeks is extremely concerning and I support the new lockdown announced by the Prime Minister; it’s clear a more severe action was appropriate.
“I understand that businesses and individuals will be impacted and I will continue to lobby for support for businesses in these very difficult times. There is support and assistance for certain sectors and the links for Dorset council are below”
