Stay Safe, Shop Local 




Welcome back,
we’ve missed you

Shops and businesses began re-opening across the Borough of Kettering from 15thJune – with work taking place to promote social distancing and safe shopping. You’re currently able to visit non-essential retail including shops selling clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books, and electronics, if they can prove to ensure shoppers are safe. Find out more.

Please also be aware that not all stores will be able to open straight away, we urge you to check their websites / social media regularly in order to find the latest information relating to individual opening times.

Stay Safe

When visiting our town centres, it’s important that you’re following the latest social distancing guidance to help keep yourself, your loved ones and the rest of the community safe and healthy.

  • STAY APART from people not from your household
  • WASH YOUR HANDS regularly or use hand sanitiser
  • PAY BY CONTACTLESS or with your smartphone

You’ll find safer queue management systems in place, including floor stickers and new entrances/exits, plus regularly disinfected high contact areas, such as bins and benches

free parking

FREE parking

Parking is currently FREE in all Kettering Borough Council car parks, and will remain so until the end of July, before being reassessed.

Markets are back!

Markets are back! This week’s markets have been held on Kettering Market Place, where they remain until further notice, to ensure stalls are not blocking the high street and have more space. We are not currently charging for market stalls and have helped all traders set up hand sanitation stations.
