Tuesday Widford “Milk Round”

Several Widford residents have had trouble getting delivery slots from the big supermarket chains clearly an alternative would be a real benefit to the village. To this end initial discussions have been held with Town and Country Produce who are based just north of Hertford. They are vegetable wholesalers who supply large organisations in bulk however they also have a growing online domestic business supplying a basic vegetable box for £30. The contents can of course be varied and they can also supply dry goods such as milk, eggs, flour, bread etc.
To make this service as cost effective and reliable as possible we have agreed that during the Covid 19 crisis all residents should agree to deliveries to Widford taking place every Tuesday. If you would like take advantage of this service please contact Alan and set up an account.

Village Hall Cancellations

It is with much regret that the Defibrillator Refresher Course scheduled to be held on 29th April will have to be cancelled as a result of Coronavirus infection. The course will be rearranged at a later date.
