Community pub introduces home delivery service providing meals to those in need




Volunteers have been offering their assistance as a Swaffham pub starts a delivery service of home-cooked meals to those in need.

The White Hart has started a “Hart to Home” delivery service this week, which covers the town and places further afield such as Oxborough and Watton.

With the coronavirus increasing its grip on society, leaving supermarket shelves bare, the family-run pub has decided to “step up our game.”

Karen Oliver of the White Hart said: “We are a community pub and we are trying to support people such as the elderly at the same time.

“There have been volunteers offering to drive packages out and all the local suppliers will be sending us what we need.”

The pub will be providing the meals at a cost of £5 each, while delivery is free.

And the service will be offered between the hours of 11am and 9pm.

“We had hoped to do this service for free but tonight’s announcement by the government has made this impossible at this time,” the pub announced on Monday.

The statement added: “We are now stepping up our game to give as much help to the local community as possible during these difficult times.”
