Should you find you need to isolate yourself or know of somebody doing so in Clapham or Patching, Yvette and John and team, in cooperation with the Parish Council, would like to offer a service to our villages.

They will order your goods and have them available for collection, or delivery should it be absolutely necessary, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
