One thing that 2020 proved was that just how much stronger we are together. During the first lockdown The Daventry Retail Forum met regularly via Zoom set up by Retail Forum member Paul Campbell from Campbells Estate Agents. The meetings provided much needed support both practically and emotionally to so many members who quite frankly didn’t know which way to turn. There was a real sense of “being in this together”. One of the highlights was the coming together of members to make a video to celebrate VE day. Pictures55 created a film celebrating and remembering everyone who did so much for us 75 years ago an it featured Daventry’s independent shops and businesses. There were truly wonderful performances from Martin Heath (BBC Radio Northampton), Amy Simpson, Lindsay Vincent and Libby Robbins, the retailers shot there own videos and then it was all edited together and shared at the same time on the morning of the 75th anniversary.
