Horsley Community Shop is offering to deliver groceries to anyone who is self-isolating as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

The volunteer-run shop is seeking to help those who would otherwise struggle with their shopping.

Anyone with a high temperature or a new, continuous cough has been asked to stay at home for seven days.

Meanwhile, empty shelves have been visible in supermarkets as shoppers panic buy goods such as pasta and toilet paper.

Stroud News and Journal:

The online shopping app Ocado also crashed yesterday following a surge in demand.

Community and independent shops may be the way forward. Riddifords, on Thornbury High Street, have piled their shop window high with toilet paper.

A post on the Horsley Community Shop Facebook page stated:

"Are you self-isolating and struggling with your grocery shopping? Do you know someone who is? Your village community shop is here to help.

"Call the shop with your grocery list and a payment card, and one of our beautiful volunteers will deliver to your house."

Anyone in need can contact the shop on 01453 836662 or horsleyshop@btconnect.com
