Thank you very much for visiting us at the weekend and for your kind words. we have had some great marketers in the village! I have tried to let as many people know but keep spreading the word to friends, family, neighbouring village.
It was typical British weather with sun, Hail, snow , rain and wind but it was great to be able to help.
As we told many people, we will be back on Saturday 4th April from 9 am – 1 pm. We are aiming to bring fresh meat and Fresh pastas as well. We are aiming to be there every Saturday during the lockdown from now on.
Also If you know the person who run the facebook page, I have contacted them but not answer yet.
Have a good day

There are several initiatives within the village to help with the supply of food, they are as follows but please let people know about them who are not on the mail list. This message together with updates will be included on the Church website
The Chafford Arms
This is the message from Paul and Jackie :-
We understand that everybody is struggling to get essential food if the panic buying continues. Jackie and I have spoken to our suppliers whose stock levels are fine they range from fresh veg, fruit , milk,eggs,bread,meat,cheese etc.
The plan we have is to arrange a couple of days a week to get a delivery. As we need to bulk buy it won’t be possible to order daily. (example ring by midday on a tues for weds delivery and by midday fri for saturday) then myself and jackie will split it into individual orders then you pick them up from the pub alternatively volunteers have said they will deliver to people who can’t get out. We would ask people to pay by card if possible.
Please pass the message on
