GIVING US A HELPING HAND DURING LOCKDOWN
Below are a few local suppliers who helped out during the FIRST lockdown, plus new ones you might like to try.

Kim Reid Fruit and Veg
It is available everyday but needs to be pre-ordered and cash payment is required. They are selling boxes of Fruit £20; Veg £15 and Salad £10. It is really quality produce and the boxes are very big.

Claybrooke Water Mill
As you can imagine they were inundated with orders for flour during the last lockdown. They came up with an excellent process so that there is perfect social distancing in operation making it safe for everyone. The products are excellent. Sally is some days dealing with over 300 emails for orders and has agreed that if we mark our email titles to include ‘Frolesworth’ she will process them where she can as a priority order.
Orders are normally fulfilled to be collected on a Tuesday or the weekend so please give as much notice as possible. Sally is working with a good range of products at present but not the usual full list but has indicated that all of the main flours that you would expect are usually available, plus a few other things – (strong white, wholemeal, plain, self-raising, spelt, rye, yeast, some bread mixes, oats, muesli). The range available and prices can be found on their website.
So, all you will need to do is:-
• Place your order by email to Sally on email address – email@example.com
• Include in the subject line – Order for Frolesworth
• State clearly what products and weight you need
• Include your phone number
• You will receive a phone call back to confirm, agree a date and time slot for collection, and the payment will be taken over the telephone
