Food delivery or collection
For those who do not wish to go out to the shops, it is very difficult to get a delivery slot with one of the major supermarkets at the moment. There are however some local businesses that can deliver to you, or will prepare an order for you to collect.
Tablehurst Community Farm has launched a delivery service for those who are vulnerable, housebound, self-isolating, or key workers whose work commitments prevent them from shopping. The list of items available is here, and you can phone 01342 823173, option 2, with your orders on Mondays or Thursdays for delivery the next afternoon. If you are shopping on behalf of any of those mentioned above, you can also order for collection from the farm.
There is also a separate meat delivery service.
The Seasons in Forest Row is operating an ordering and collection service. Click here for their product list. Send your order by email including your name, address and home and mobile phone numbers. If you are not on email, you can place your order by phone on 01342 824673, Monday – Friday 8 am – 12 pm.
