Matterdale food deliveries and other services during coronavirus/Covid-19
For anyone who is currently self-isolating, or is worried about going to the shops, Star Fruits, Another Weigh, The Chopping Block have teamed together to get home deliveries out to those who can't get to them. The delivery for Matterdale is on a Wednesday and all orders will be delivered to Emma and Chris Bray who will then make Matterdale valley deliveries.
The process works as follows:
1. Place your order with each shop separately, with Star Fruits and Another Weigh by the end of Monday, with The Chopping block on Tuesday (they are closed on Monday). Each shop is currently preferring you place your order by email which makes it easier to manage.
2. Make sure you include your full address, any specific delivery directions and your telephone number. Another Weigh and the Choppig Block will contact you for payment before delivery. Starfruits include an invoice to be payed by BACS or over the phone.
3. Chopping Block and Another Weigh will give your orders to Star Fruits who will the deliver to the Brays for onward distribution in the valley.
