Advice is that we stay at home during this Coronavirus pandemic except in certain specified circumstances as set out on the Government’s website at: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus. The advice includes shopping for essentials.
We recently sought information from residents via our Facebook page about the local food delivery services they are using during the Covid-19 lockdown and this will be of interest to other residents who would prefer home delivery to visiting shops. All the supermarkets offer deliveries but it can be difficult to get a slot.
Many local businesses are also offering home delivery services for bread, fruit and vegetables, meat and other things. There are also Farm shops nearby at Hethersett and Mulbarton which will take orders for collection or deliver.
A comprehensive list of these suppliers and their contact details can be found on the Love Norwich Food website at: http://www.lovenorwichfood.co.uk/2020/03/31/home-delivery-in-norfolk-staysafe/?fbclid=IwAR2FvwRaaBJDIsjo3dHVK9H9IwDAW3_n2eucdHT5zsU9xlQzQfdwJhwHnzs
Helpful comments from residents were as follows:
“We have had luck with deliveries from The Greengrocers on Earlham http://www.thegreengrocers.co.uk/coronavirus-delivery… and Old Hall Farm http://www.oldhallfarm.co.uk/…/home-deliveries-call…/. Folland Organics from Norwich market is also now doing a very organised delivery service.”
“Can personally confirm Easters are awesome – very straightfoward. Also The Greengrocers at Earlham Shops – minimum £20 delivery – you can phone your order through for both. I’ve seen mrfruity.co.uk driving around a few times. For those who have smartphone delivernorfolk app is great.”
