During times of uncertainty one Cumbrian company has started offering a home delivery alternative for those unable to make it out during the lockdown.
Simply Fresh, in Gosforth, is making Milk, bread, sweets, drinks, cleaning products, and vegetables – including some veg and meat prep – are all available through this service, particularly for the vulnerable, at this time.
David Ancell owner of Simply Fresh Gosforth commented: “It is great to be in a position to provide what is proving to be a very popular home delivery service but also it is lovely to provide for those who are more vulnerable and to know we are helping them limit their contact with others is just music to everyone’s ears.”
This service enables those more vulnerable to avoid contact with anyone or any surfaces which may transfer the virus.
The process of placing an order has been made a great deal easier. Orders taken before noon are delivered the same day and orders are taken over the phone, through email and on Facebook.
Co-owner Michelle Ancell is also trying to brighten everyone up with her positive messages posted dailyon the social media channels, which encourages everyone to think positively and make the most of being at home.
This service is available for residents of the Gosforth area including Seascale and Drigg.
More information can be found on their Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
