May Hill Hub
The May Hill Hub is now up and running!
It’s a local produce click and collect service created by a group of May Hill residents for our lovely community.
Building on the success of the May Hill Lockdown Fruit and Veg Bag project, the Hub is a centralised pick up point with a small amount of items available to buy on the day.
It will run on a trial basis until Christmas and is available for everyone to use.
- Go to www.mayhillhub.com
- Browse the lovely local goodies.
- Support Local Producers. Shop Local for the Weekend!
- Buy before Tuesday midnight for pick up on Fridays.
- Go to May Hill Village Hall to collect on Fridays from 2.30-6.30pm (Full COVID considerations in place. Bring your own shopping bag and face mask! )
If you volunteered to help us out – as so many did – thank you so much, Dave Elvidge will shortly be in touch; if you’ve not heard anything within the next couple of weeks then it maybe that you’ve slipped though the net – please accept our apologies (things have been super crazy) and give Dave a call on 01452 830013. Everyone welcome, just give Dave a ring!
If technology is not your thing, Dave also has an army of helpers who would love to help you out, he can find you a “shopping buddy” to shop online for you, or help get your shopping to you if you have restricted mobility.
Huge thanks to May Hill Village Hall Committee for allowing us use of the Hall as we test the water for this new venture. Also thanks to Taynton Parish Council for their support and encouragement.
Fruit & Vegetable Bag Delivery – moving to Fridays!
May Hill Community Fruit and Veg Bags – Info and Orders
Support local farmers and food suppliers at this difficult time! Support each other! Get fresh, seasonal, fruit, veg and salad bags, much of it locally sourced, delivered directly to your door! Run by our community, for our community!
Our bags contain a changing mix of fruit, veg and salad each week. Begun for lockdown, continuing while things are still uncertain. You can order every week or just when you want to. Bulk purchasing from our supplier gives us access to a wide range of great fruit and veg. We split what we order each week evenly between the bags, with no profits or mark ups so it’s great value. The more orders we get the more variety we can offer.
