See how Uckfield residents and businesses are responding to the Coronavirus in this update for Tuesday, April 14. More news will be added during the course of the day.
Nose2Tail Family Butchers
Nose2Tail Family Butchers is now offering delivery only to people who are self isolating but hopes others will visit the shop at Ashgrove Farm, Piltdown, to make their purchases.
The business is cutting back to 15 deliveries a day, from 45, because it couldn’t keep up with the high demand.
Ordering can be done by phone on 01825 509164 only for the next available day.
Luke Watson and Danny Martin say: “If this works and we are able to do more we certainly will but for this week it will be very strict as our health is very important as well.
“We will not leave anyone short and we will do what is needed if people are desperately short on food.
“All existing orders will be fulfilled and we thankyou for your understanding and patience in these difficult times.”
Peter Oliver Homes
Peter Oliver estate agents are saying thank you to the NHS through a window display at their High Street office.
Directors Nick Gulliver and Owen Badman say: “Our office isn’t open, but we wanted to show our appreciation for the wonderful job the NHS are doing in such difficult circumstances. I’m sure you’ll all agree, thank you is an understatement.”
Wealden Crematorium has put measures in place to ensure social distancing and safety of staff and people attending services.
Restrictions include only immediate family attending up to a maximum of ten mourners. Those living in the same household can sit together but each household must six two metres/six feet apart from each other.
Anyone turned away from entering the Ceremony Hall must immediately leave the crematorium grounds.
The crematorium waiting room is closed and mourners are told: “Please wait in your car until the allotted time for the service and after the service has finished please return straight to your car and leave the crematorium.”
Mourners are not allowed to touch the coffin.
All services can be live webcast with arrangements made through the funeral director.
