The main supermarkets (Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Aldo, Co-op etc) are still open and most have introduced queuing systems and other measures to keep customers and staff safe. Some also have early morning priority shopping periods for NHS staff, and elderly and vulnerable customers.
Getting online shopping delivery slots with the major supermarkets is not easy, although they are working to give priority to elderly and vulnerable customers.
Below is a list of local businesses, showing which are open to the public and which offer collection and/or delivery services. Many have adapted their normal working methods in order to help the community. Some have been overwhelmed with demand but are working hard to respond to every call. As the situation is constantly changing, some of the businesses might change their services. We will endeavour to keep the site up to date.
Please note that the Village Council does not support or endorse any of the businesses mentioned, and has not checked whether they have necessary licences or permissions. The Council has provided the information in good faith and cannot be held responsible for any problems that may be experienced.
