Home Deliveries & Availability Update

Dear All,

Home Deliveries (Week 2 – 31st March)

Area 1 ( Rye & surrounding district)
We are off to a much better start this week! James and his teams are in place but the volume of orders increasing over and above
the huge start last week. We are using 3 vans a day here some of which are doing 3 journeys each. Over 250 requests have already
been made this week.

Area 2 (Battle, Wadhurst & surrounding districts)
Continuing on the good work last week, volume has remained good, and despatch is on time. Claire and her teams are aiming here for a Day 1 – Day 3 service and
are inching toward achieving this. As in Rye – 3 chilled vans are working across the area – doing multiple journeys in the course of day.

Please could I request anyone leaving messages on either of the order answerphones – please do speak clearly stating your name, address, post code & telephone number.
Sadly, we have had few cases where we have been unable to identify the caller.

Availability
I am pleased to report as follows:

Product areas: Availability
Bakery Goods Good
Fresh Milk Good
Dairy Products Marked improvement compared to last week
Eggs Marked improvement
Fruit & Vegetables Good
Paper Goods Toilet Rolls – marked improvement
Tin Veg, Soup, Meat & Fish Still challenging, – available but restricted choice
Fresh meat Good (have seen full shelves today!)

And something to whet the appetite!
Easter Eggs Good
Hot X Buns Excellent!

Hopefully this is helpful as you plan your week!

Thank you again for your understanding and patience,

Stephen
