We thought it might be useful to let people know about some local services for people who are self isolating or just social distancing.

The Allotment on Queens Road is currently open and is trying to deliver supplies to people who need them. For those who don’t know the shop, they sell locally grown vegetables, seasonal fruit and eggs. You can contact them by email at info@allotmentgroceries.co.uk . They will send an invoice and take payment by card.

Body Works on Welford Road is closed but is offering a range of online courses including Pilates, sitting and floor exercise classes. They can be contacted at www.thebodyworks.co.uk or by calling 01162885533

Things are changing rapidly, so we will do our best to keep this information up to date.

If you know of other local shops or services that are available during this emergency, please let us know. As well as helping those of us who are staying at home, we want to support local businesses.
