West Meon Parish Council
West Meon Village Shops
FROM MONDAY 30TH MARCH THE SHOP WILL BE OPEN BUT OPERATING DIFFERENTLY
Due to the growing seriousness of the Covid-19 Pandemic and in order to protect the health of our staff and volunteers, and to help prevent the spread of this illness in our community, the shop has decided to implement new measures to keep us all safe.
The shop will be open for telephone and e-mail orders with collections and deliveries only.
How will it work .....
Please e-mail or phone the shop between 9 a.m. and 12 noon Monday to Friday to place your order.
Tel: 01730 829310
Orders will be either ready for collection at the back door from 1 p.m. or delivered in the afternoon, free of charge.
Ad hoc customers can come to the back door (by the garage) between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. and they will be served by a member of staff.
There will be no access into the shop.
Please be patient.
Saturdays - collections and ad hoc customers only. Phone orders will not be taken.
Sundays - newspaper collections only
Account customers: If you have an accountn items will be put on your bill. Newspapers and milk will be charged once a month as normal. Grocery bills will be issued every fortnight and we would appreciate prompt payment. Please pay by BACS, if possible, using your surname as a reference.
Card payments: You can use a card for collections at the door. We have a new wireless contact card reader arriving next week.
Delivery area: We will do deliveries from Bramdean to East Meon, Warnford to Privett. Please call the shop if you are unsure.
If you are e-mailing an order, please leave address, postcode, phone number and clear directions to your house. Grocery deliveries will be undertaken by a team of volunteers so please don’t assume they will know how to find you!
We apologise for any upset or inconvenience these changes might cause. Rest assured we will be working hard to get your groceries to you in this unsettled time.
Stay well and stay home.
