Local Support & Shopping

During the Coronavirus epidemic life has become rather difficult for many with the need to stay indoors for many and if outr to keep at least 2m from others (i.e. social distancing).

For many this is making shopping very difficult and many other activities such as collection of prescriptions, visits to doctors and more.

This page identifies local shopping possibilities and the assistance being offered by the Blakeney 12.

Major Supermarkets

Morrisons, Tescos, Sainsburys and Waitrose all offer home delivery services but getting a time-slot is currently very difficult. Click & Collect services are also available but they typically require a drive to the larger stores in Kings Lynn, Dereham or Norwich.

To use these services you need to register and with the current pressures on these services you may find that they have stopped taking new registrations.
