Doorstep Delivery Service
Times are pretty frightening at the moment, and our community is more important than ever right now. There are a lot of vulnerable people in our area, people who can’t get the help they need, or who are facing a pretty bleak time over the coming weeks and maybe months. That some of our neighbours can be staring at prolongued isolation with only the most basic needs met is both saddening and frustrating.
We’ve decided to do something about it.
Together with several local independent businesses, we will be offering a doorstep delivery service to anyone in need (initially three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, although if there us sufficient demand, the frequency may be increased). If you live within 5-ish miles of Shaftesbury (check the map below) and you’re self-isolating, we’ll bring it to your door!
Every morning we’ll update our stock list on our websites and social media or you can give me a call on 07400 344330. Orders can be placed over the phone or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please don’t leave an answerphone message, however, just in case it doesn’t get picked up in time! With the exception of special orders, they need to be in by 11am the day before delivery, to ensure we can get everything ready for you.
The High Street Bakery (bread, cakes, baking ingredients)
The Truckle Truck (cheeses, biscuits, chutneys)
We hope to add more businesses soon!
