A campaign has been started by Ilkley BID - to let people know which businesses are open during the virus outbreak.  

  • Ilkley BID have started a campaign to let people know which businesses are open during the virus outbreak.  
  • They are helping food outlets cover the cost of deliveries and have bought insulated food delivery bags. 
  • The message from Ilkley BID is: ‘If you can’t come to Ilkley, let Ilkley come to you!’ 

The 'Ilkley To You' website gives details of which businesses are still trading.  

Ilkley BID are also helping food outlets cover the cost of deliveries - and have bought insulated food delivery bags. 

Helen Rhodes, Ilkley BID Manager, said:

"We are in an ever-evolving situation now so realise that even the option of ordering for delivery or collection might change but for the time being, we want to encourage the lovely people of Ilkley and surrounding areas to continue to support our businesses.

"Everyone can help by ordering from them but also by following Ilkley To You on Facebook and Instagram and checking out the website, which we are continuing to populate with relevant information."

Julie Mountain from Café J said:

"We are delivering to some of the local residential homes as well as to individuals and can take orders by phone so not restricted to those who can order online."

Emporio Italia are also offering take-aways and have taken advantage of the insulated bags provided by Ilkley BID. Joint owner Sam Wagstaff said:

"We are currently trying to reserve the delivery slots for the local NHS workers and support staff so we are asking other local people to come and collect from us on Railway Road. We've had a really good response so far and are just trying to do what we can."
