Local Shopping – Updated for Lockdown 2

Tollesbury Volunteers can fetch your shopping: just ask! Wherever possible, please order and pay the shop directly, then ask us to collect. Several local shops deliver, but they’re snowed under, so we can help.

Not all shops can take phone payments, but you can transfer the money to the Taylor’s Charity, which will pay the shop for you: details on request. If you have no access to making bank transfers, please talk to us for other arrangements.

If you have a supermarket collection slot at Maldon or Tiptree (in normal hours!) we can fetch that for you too.
