Shopping Update

We are indebted to Sue and Mike H for this information on Ashbourne shopping –

Shopping possibilities in Ashbourne for those self-isolating or just wanting to avoid more contact
I just wanted to let people know the measures a couple of shops were taking against Coronavirus. Natural Choice is limiting it to just 2 shoppers at a time (and are still doing refills, wearing gloves) whilst Fresh Choice now serve you from the shop entrance, picking what you need, wearing gloves. Both shops are closing earlier (from 3 or 4pm) to process their deliveries. So if you are heading to their shops, best to go well before. Both places were not busy, with only a couple of people in the queue when we went yesterday after lunch. I have to say, they have all had a pretty exhausting few days but have devised brilliant new systems.
The following shops below are offering deliveries. As Fresh Choice are dropping veg orders off at The Butchery in Tissington, they confirmed to me that they could coordinate just one drop-off there too. But people would have to place their orders with each individual shop. When I spoke to them they said they intend this service for those who really cannot leave their home.
Contact Fresh Choice on email or ring 0791 6142050
To be clear, ring each shop to place an order, Pinder at Fresh Choice will only co-ordinate.

Ashbourne Bakehouse
Fresh Choice
Cheddar Gorge
Nigel’s Butchers
Mark’s Family Butcher
Natural Choice
Maison du Bière (hard to write this one when it should be ” de la Bière!!”)
Hope this helps if people are still finding it hard to get a delivery slot.

Meat and Vegetables

We are indebted to Malcolm H for passing this on to us –

I bought meat from Andrew Holmes Butchers in Tissington yesterday and he told me he is able to take telephone orders.
He also has an arrangement with Fresh Choice vegetables of Ashbourne in that they will deliver telephone orders to him and keep them in their cold room so that you can collect both veg and meat orders at once. A great help as it obviously avoids the necessity to travel into Ashbourne

We have been informed by East Midlands Ambulance Service that for the time being, owing to lack of personal protection, First Responders will  NOT be dispatched to Cardiac Arrests or to breathing difficulties and suspected Covid 19 cases. This means that we will only really be sent to stroke or choking casualties.

In case of medical emergency ALWAYS dial 999 . A First Responder will be dispatched if one is on duty. We will be providing reduced cover as some of our group are self-isolating in line with government guidelines. 

There is a static defibrillator at the pub and the access code will be provided when you call 999.

If you fancy refreshing your CPR skills in the event of needing to assist during a cardiac arrest please take a look at a YouTube video such as the one below from the British Heart Foundation featuring Vinnie Jones.
