Community Transport launches food delivery service for people self-isolating in Brighton & Hove

In order to help people in Brighton & Hove who are self-isolating due to the Coronavirus, Community Transport has adapted our regular shopping bus service to bring life’s essentials to you. 

Patricia out and about delivering food orders to local residents

Our new service is for anyone who is self-isolating and cannot easily access food and provisions.  You do not need to be an existing member and you do not need to be elderly or disabled.  The service is for everyone in the Brighton & Hove area who for whatever reason can’t easily access basic essentials and we are delighted to be working with local independent grocer Dubleaus to provide you with good quality fresh food at affordable prices.

We have split the city up into five zones, and each zone has two deliveries per week:

Zone 1: Hove, Hangleton, Portslade & Mile Oak; delivered on Tuesdays & Fridays

Zone 2: City Centre, Preston Park, Westdene, Patcham & Hollingbury: delivered on Wednesdays & Fridays

Zone 3: Lewes Rd, Hollingdean, Coldean, Moulsecoomb & Bevendean: delivered on Mondays & Wednesdays

Zone 4: Hanover, Queens Park, Kemptown & Whitehawk: delivered on Tuesdays & Thursdays

Zone 5: Saldean, Rottingdean, Woodingdean & Ovingdean; delivered on Mondays & Thursdays

Community Transport General Manager, Tom Druitt, says:

“As the Coronavirus crisis has worsened, we have stopped taking people shopping and instead we are now taking their shopping to them. We started this last week, originally with the aim of using supermarket ‘click & collect’ to order and pick up people’s shopping and drop it off to them. However, as I’m sure you are all-too-aware, there is now a waiting list for supermarket ‘click & collect’ of 2-3 weeks.

“This is no use to our regulars, who usually shop on a week-by-week basis and do not have the luxury of piling a year’s worth of toilet paper into a 4×4. And although the supermarkets advertise a fast-track scheme for ‘vulnerable’ people, getting on it is nigh impossible. So we’ve teamed up with our local independent grocer Louis (who runs Dubleaus in Whitehawk) and launched the Community Transport Food Delivery Service. We hope it’s useful for people”
