Sillars has come up with the Darlington Promise to encourage people to support local businesses, visit nearby attractions, and promote positivity.
The Promise contains ten easy to do things, including helping keep the area clean and tidy, rewarding excellent customer service with loyalty, and spending £10 in a local independent shop.
Paul Shoulder of Sillars said: “We need to rally around together like we did when the first lockdown happened. The Promise is a way for us to show our support and help our area return to normal. We’d love to hear from people who are taking the Promise and hope it captures the attention of our community.”
