For the benefit of anyone who’s housebound for any reason – including self-isolation due to the coronavirus – here’s a list of local shops and suppliers happy to deliver direct to your home. They’ve really stepped up to the plate during this time of crisis, doing everything they can to make sure their customers, especially the elderly and vulnerable, don’t run out of essential supplies.
They’re providing a vital service to our local community at a time when the major supermarkets are struggling to cope with demand so let’s support them. Please spread the word about the following suppliers to anyone you know who’s having difficulty getting a regular source of food and other essentials and who may not have access to the Internet.
Most accept payment over the phone. Some accept cash on delivery but this may stop as the situation worsens. Some offer free delivery but in other cases delivery charges may apply depending on the cost of your order so check when you call.
