Service Update

For social distancing, your delivery driver may need to leave your meal at the door. If you have mobility issues or are unable to get to the door, allowances can be made only where needed. If this is the case, please let us know.

The Meals on Wheels Service is great value, providing healthy meals and a regular friendly visit.

Our hot, tasty and nutritious lunch is delivered to you every day by a reliable and friendly driver. We can supply a variety of delicious meals, consisting of two or three courses. We cater for all dietary requirements and specific medical conditions. Two courses cost £4.75 and three courses cost £6.00.

Along with the hot lunches, we can deliver an afternoon tea at the same time. Afternoon teas are a light meal of sandwiches, a dessert pot and cake. They can be eaten at any time, later in the day.
