Weekly Update

This week has been quite a busy week. Apologies for the number of posts, I try not to clog up everyone’s inboxes but there seemed to be a lot of things that needed passing on and many that needed passing on quickly !

Here’s a round up.

Michael’s are struggling a bit with the volume of orders at the moment and have asked us to please order a day earlier so that they can get chance to make up the orders. So, in future we need to order on Wednesday by 12:00 for delivery on Friday.

Hobbs House Bakery orders seem to be going well. They’ve been struggling to have enough flour available as their flour delivery is half a day after our collection (Tuesday / Friday) !  but they were telling me that they intend to keep some in reserve for us. I have to say, they’ve been fantastic to deal with.

Veg & Fruit orders seem to work well (Thank you Peter & Sarah Wyman !) but there’s a small weather related change. Peter has been bulk ordering potatoes and carrots, re-bagging into smaller amounts and then storing the remainder. The warmer weather means that they’re not keeping well so he’s going to have to move back to just passing on the large bags.

Malmesbury Town Council have also issued a list of other available delivery services. I’ve put the list on the COVID-19 Deliveries Page.

The Charity HEALS is working with Malmesbury Town Council to launch a new appeal for volunteers and donations – details on the News Page.

Wiltshire Life
Wiltshire Life Magazine is offering people a free digital copy of the magazine for Easter – details on the News Page.

For those of you finding that each day is blurring into the other days…..this week is recycling week !   as far as I can see from the Wiltshire website the collections are happening as normal :-

The volunteering service set up by Robin Tjolle seems to be working well and the new WhatsApp service set up by Geoff Preston seems to be helping that run smoothly.  If you want to join the service, mail Geoff.

Tea at Three
Today’s event is Tea at Three !
