Today we asked SNJ readers to nominate their Local Lockdown Heroes.

A number of pubs received nominations having had to completely change the way they operate.

The Old Neighbourhood in Chalford, the Crown & Sceptre in Stroud and the Carpenters Arms in Westrip were all suggested.

Nominating the Old Neighbourhood, Shereen Meanwell said: “When lockdown hit their pub they turned it into a little corner shop that grew and grew offering everything from bread, fruit and veg to flowers and compost and also offering a takeaway food service which is absolutely lovely.

“They really kept our Chalford community going through very tough times.

Ade Blair said Crown & Sceptre landlord Rodda Thomas had: “Thoughtfully transformed his pub into a fantastic corner shop full of fresh products, essentials and a few treats while still keeping customers safe with rigorous social distancing rules.

Nikki McClelland said the Carpenters Arms had done “a brilliant job with their pop-up shop and takeaway meals.”

There were also calls to recognise volunteers from the Stroud Coronavirus Community Response group.

You can find a full list of nominations over on our Facebook page.
