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 next day delivery service to anyone in need. If you live within 5 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. Payment online is preferred, but we will be able to take cash if that’s not possible.
The High Street Bakery (bread, cakes, baking ingredients)
The Truckle Truck (cheeses, biscuits, chutneys)
We hope to add more businesses soon!

Lastly, please pass this on to anyone you know who may need our help. Of course there is an element of this that is about trying to keep our local shops and businesses open, but more importantly, it’s about making sure no one has to go without good, wholesome food – in fact, that’s more important than ever right now. Let’s help our friends and neighbours, and make this difficult time a little bit easier.
