Fiona Hutchings, who works for the company, said that clear signage was key to keeping shoppers and workers alert to the government guildelines.

She said: “We wanted to provide some help to small businesses starting up again in the coming weeks. We have designed some signage that can be used inside or outside of their premises.

“The signage would be free to download.

“We think clear and concise signage is crucial for businesses in keeping customers and employees alert of the government guidelines in place for Covid-19.

“The signs are professional, clean and easy to read. I thought I would reach out to you as you may know some businesses who would find these beneficial in the

area.

She added: “We have a Facebook page with the posters advertised on there called Scene Graphics.

“Our website is currently being re-built and live in the coming weeks.”

It comes as the government continues to relax the lockdown, with all essential shops now re-opening after months of being forced to shut their doors.
