Coronavirus update 26 June 2020

A big thank you to all our wonderful customers for your support over the last three months. The first few weeks of the lockdown were very difficult for us dealing with the dramatic changes affecting all aspects of our business.

In recent weeks we have re-organised the business, employed additional help and now have a functioning delivery service in conjunction with Savills the Butchers, in addition to the village shop and post office.

Extended opening hours

From Sunday 5th July, we’ll be extending our opening hours as follows:

Monday – Friday 7.30am-5.30pm

Saturday 7.30am-2pm

Sunday 8am-12pm

Placing orders for collection or delivery

You can continue to submit orders via email to garydeare@aol.com or by phoning the shop during our new extended opening hours (above) on 01803 842148. If you happen to forget any items, please use a follow up email.

If you have any questions or queries about seasonal produce or other items ahead of placing an order, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We’re now in a position to take on additional customers if you or anyone you know may want to utilise our personal, friendly and flexible service.

Deliveries

We will continue to serve all of our existing customers for as long as they need us, and have allocated Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for deliveries going forward. Collection can be arranged at any time to suit the customer.

To ensure we provide you with the freshest produce, we are introducing a cut-off time of 12 noon the day before, for customers placing an order for delivery.

We will be introducing geographical deliveries on our delivery days, and will continue to be flexible and do our best to deliver at a time that is most convenient for you.

As usual, we will contact you via telephone when your order has been put together in the shop to confirm the amount and day/time of delivery. Please don’t hesitate to confirm with us if you are unsure.

Shop visits

We will still be applying the government guidelines on social distancing to protect our staff and customers. Please still enter one customer (or family) at a time, entering from the front and exiting via the side door. While queuing please maintain a two meter gap.

Post Office

If you have a number of parcels to post and would like to avoid queuing, please contact us on 01803 842148 to make special arrangements.
