NEWY KIDS ON THE BLOCK: Awesome new businesses that are DEFINITELY worth a visit!

There’s no denying that this pandemic has cut an insidious swathe through almost every aspect of our lives in 2020.

And while there is little positive to be found in the lockdowns and uncertainty COVID has engendered, we here at Newcastle Live prefer to look on the bright side of things.

In that spirit, one of the silver linings of this current situation is the amount of new businesses that have commenced trade in the middle of the pandemic, in particular those in the hospitality sphere whose industry has been decimated in 2020.

So, here are just a few local businesses that have thrown open doors in the face of COVID-19. So, go check them out and welcome them to the neighbourhood!
