The village shop is still well stocked and the proprietor, Sarah Riggs, is being incredibly helpful to anyone in need.

If you need any groceries delivered please ring 612269 between 10-2pm.

Powells Butchers, aka Origin, is also delivering throughout the parish. They are open to the public from 8am to 11am and orders can also be placed by ringing 613003.

The Crusty Loaf is much busier than usual so if you need bread, cakes etc it is best to ring in advance – 612455.

Finally, if you are a parish resident you will have received an information card from St Mary’s and Olveston Parish Council. As the current crisis worsens the contact numbers may become increasingly relevant, so hold on to the card. If you have a vulnerable neighbour and are able to help, complete the reverse of the card and put it through his/hers door.
