Deliveries and such like from local businesses 

We are fortunate that a number of local businesses have taken the initiative and organised delivery services or ‘order and collect’ arrangements.

This page gives a summary of the ones we know about, and please email us with any additions or corrections to slindonlife@slindon.com

The Forge

The Forge now offer a delivery service for Slindon, Fontwell, Eartham and Madehurst (free with orders over £5).

This includes all the usual fresh produce (fruit & veg, bread, milk and meat) and grocery items plus their home-baked goods (sausage rolls, quiches etc) and they have started to make some frozen ready meals. 

This service has proved very popular and special thanks are due to the team of village volunteers who are helping the Forge handle the volume of deliveries.

To order ring 814324 (emailing your order is not recommended as they are so busy that reading emails can be delayed). Ideally ring in the afternoon for next day delivery, to help them smooth their workflow!

Take-away from ‘The Spur’

The Spur is closed of course but they are offering a take-away service.

Click here for the menu on their website which includes order and payment arrangements. Or call 814216

We have had good reports from people who have used the service.

Hillside Nursery, Bury

This independent nursery just over the Downs in Bury grow their own veg plants, bedding etc (and also sell compost).

They are closed of course, but offer an ‘order and collect’ service. It is well organised but to keep themselves and customers safe they have to be very specific about how to order and collect.
