Coronavirus - Update (16)

Meat in the Square have posted: "We are reopening on Wednesday (13 May) and have made several changes to enable safe working and shopping. We urge everyone who can come and shop "normally" to do so, as we have redesigned the shop to allow for safe distancing. We have new opening hours to allow time for home deliveries and pre-arranged order collections for the most vulnerable who cannot shop normally. To make things sustainable we need to minimise the pre-orders and home deliveries and maximise in-shop shopping. Therefore home delivery and collection slots will be limited and reserved for the most vulnerable. Our new opening hours will be: Tuesday - Friday 9.30am - 3.30pm, (closed Tuesday this week) Saturday 8.30am - 2.00pm. We would ask that Saturdays are left predominately for those who are working on week days and cannot get in to shop. We will review how it works over the coming weeks and hope that we can meet everyone's needs, while maintaining safe distancing. We look forward to welcoming you back - we have missed you!"
