Local businesses need all the help we can give them at the moment. Emma at the organic Woodside Plant Centre near Ancrum told us she is currently taking phone orders and will deliver to your garden. The gates at Woodside remain closed to visitors just now however.
Emma wrote to us recently:
“Most of you will probably now know that we have had to close our doors to all customers and visitors, however we are busy taking telephone orders for home deliveries, and we’re doing our best to fulfil demand. While seeds and compost are selling fast, there are lots of lovely plants that are looking gorgeous, and if you could see them I know you’d want to have some for your garden! If you’d like to order for local home delivery please call on 01835 830315. Please note that due to reduced staff, we are unable to accept orders by email or Facebook, so please pick up the phone. Orders are taken from 10am – 3pm daily.”
“We’re doing our best to answer phones and deal with enquiries, so please be patient with us. Can I also please ask that you don’t come out to see me to say “hello” or offer to help unload my van when I’m doing deliveries. I know it seems unfriendly and it’s hard not to do it, but please just give me a wave from the window and stay safely indoors.
“Thank you so much for your continued support and your kind messages. I do read them all, but don’t always get chance to reply – to here’s a great big collective “Thank You” .
