Effingham Residents Association (EFFRA) decided at its first meeting after the AGM (held virtually), to provide free advertising to its existing advertisers and tradesmen until the end of the year. During these unprecedented times of the Covid-19 emergency, all businesses are suffering. It is important that we support our local businesses. It is amazing what Effingham residents can do. At the height of the emergency Bevan’s Butchers and the Village Supermarket suffered a devastating fire. With the leadership of Rev. Mandy MacVean, the Community Store was setup to provide basic groceries for Effingham residents.
