Important notice - Online Ordering Closed Temporarily - Please Read Carefully

The Apricot Centre is doing everything it can to help deliver local fresh food to the community. We have however now hit the capacity for what we can deliver and therefore will not be able to accept new orders for the time being. We still have a limited number of places available for the following groups:
 - self-isolating WITH symptoms
 - self-isolating due to underlying health problems
 - over 70's who have difficulties accessing shopping
 - key workers (as defined in the government guidelines)

If you fall into one of these groups, you are welcome to create an account and order. Following that please email and let me know so that I can try and put your order as a priority (and I will try to let your order go through) until we have reached our ultimate maximum capacity.

For others, we wil have a waiting list for new orders, so we would encourage you to create an account and order the items that you would like. We will then put these orders on hold and then let you know. We will then reinstate these orders on a first come first served basis as availability arises, and we will inform you that we are ready to deliver to you. We are working to try and increase our capacity but we need to hold out at the current number for the weeks commencing 23rd March and 30th March.

Thank you for your support and understanding

Warmest Wishes, 

The Apricot Centre Team
