PRESCRIPTION DELIVERY SERVICE
If you would like the Street Community Support Group to collect your medicines from the pharmacy and deliver them to you, please ask your chemist to arrange this service for you.
Collections are made every day from Boots Pharmacy in Vine Health Park and Tout's Pharmacy on the High Street and delivered to you the same day.
If you have an urgent prescription please try to arrange this through your pharmacy's own delivery first.
Please note, our volunteers are not able to deliver controlled medicines.
The volunteers for this service and delivery vehicles are kindly provided by Millfield School.
Individual volunteers are shopping for those unable to do so and have recently developed this service so that they can now take payment by card over the phone, ensuring the whole process involves no contact with the people who need this service.
If you need help with your food shopping please do not hesitate to contact us, click here for our contact details.
EMERGENCY FOOD BANK
& FOOD PARCELS
CAN YOU HELP?
The Salvation Army has set up an emergency food bank to help those who are self-isolating or struggling due to job losses and having children at home. They are asking for anyone who thinks they may be able to donate some food to drop it off at The Salvation Army on Goswell Road.
Donations will be gratefully received.
Drop off times are Mondays,
Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am-1pm
To comply with current Government advice, please leave any donations by the front door.
For those unable to drop-off supplies in person who would still like to help, donations can be made through JustGiving, with all donations going directly to providing food and essential items to the people in our community.
You can donate here.
Thank you for your continued support.
DO YOU NEED HELP?
If you need help with food at this difficult time The Salvation Army can deliver food parcels to your doorstep. For those using this service, please keep an eye on your food and plan ahead. Where possible The Salvation Army will only deliver Monday-Friday in order for stocks to be organised at the weekend.
Please phone before 1pm for same-day delivery:
There are a number of local garden maintenance contractors working within the social distancing guidelines, you can find a list below. Please remember that if you pay a contractor to remove waste from your property you need to check that they are a licensed contractor.
Nicks Waste & Rubbish is a licensed waste carrier and is able to remove any garden waste if your gardener is unable to, find out more at nickswasteandrubbish.co.uk
