The Bugle is about shops & businesses that normally open their doors to the public.
It started up a fortnight into the first Lockdown, when so much was so uncertain. About 16 shops were open in those early days.
Wallingford's local shops & businesses were, and still are, truly amazing. They adapted to the situation and continued to keep us going.
Eventually, by August, 116 shops, businesses & organisations (not including pubs) had their doors open. Here is the list of them
So the Bugle, having been visited by over 3,300 people, went into hibernation.....

The Bugle is not a business or advertising agency
its purpose is purely to keep us informed through the Lockdown, so that shopping can be planned, save unneccessary car/bus trips to/from surrounding villages
or walking to/from Wallingford town centre.
Currently there's about 68 shops and businesses open in Wallingford. 14 of those are Food & Supplies, the rest mainly Takeaway and/or Click & Collect. In addition, 23 organisations are giving support and online resources.
I haven't included pubs doing takeaway meals yet.
Updates will happen during and at end of each week.
Please share this website around. Share on Facebook, WhatsApp, wherever.
Each page will print out nicely if you know anyone without internet.
Do please email me if I've left anyone out or anything needs correcting/changing.
