Farm shop launches online delivery to ‘create jobs’ amid coronavirus spread

The service, set up at Flower Farm in Godstone, Surrey, is set to go live on Thursday (March 19) and will take on a new team of delivery drivers in an effort to provide jobs for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

 

It comes after the COVID-19 crises sent large parts of the economy into lockdown, which recently prompted the Government to pledge £350 billion in aid to keep UK businesses and workers afloat.

 

Poultry farmer and owner of the farm shop Patrick Deeley claimed the operation would ’create jobs’ for anyone who had found themselves out of work.

He said: “We have been working around the clock to set up a simple online system, where people can get essentials from the farm, delivered to their door.

 

“Leaving the house at this time can be tricky – so this is our way of staying in touch and supporting the local community.

 

"Any help that we can give to people in the community - near or far - has got to be a great thing I think, so we are going give it a try.”

 

First deliveries are to be made this Friday (March 19) and will deliver to anyone within five miles.
