During this November’s national lockdown, businesses and shops in Caterham Valley are having to operate a little differently as they gear up towards Christmas. Our aim here is to share the information we can to support you and our town, and to let you know which businesses are trading and how they are operating.
If you own a business which is a member of Caterham BID and would like to be listed on this page or to update your entry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Caterham Christmas gift guide can also be found here. Thank you!
For further information on our Caterham Valley businesses, please follow us on Facebook where we will try to share as many updates as possible – www.facebook.com/caterhamvalleyforyou
