Despite losing trade due to the latest COVID-related lockdown, Lee Chaplin is offering free meals to affected community members.
Ms Chaplin and her team at Food Babies Takeaway and Catering are offering a hot meal to anyone who needs it at no cost.
"We wanted to extend a hand out to people that were struggling," she said.
"The community was so great every time we've been in lockdown and they've supported us, we thought we'd like to give back to the community."
