While this travel blogger’s wings have been clipped, I thought I might make myself useful and compile a list of all the small businesses offering takeaway meals and food delivery in my local area of Wokingham, Berkshire.
My intention was to highlight the small businesses that could be supported while social distancing but since the initial publication of this post we have entered a lockdown and many businesses shut their doors. A few restaurant and cafes, however, are still offering a delivery service so I’ve gone through and updated the information (as of 27th March) where I could find it online.
If you’re unable to leave the home you might find these food delivery services helpful. Please check out this post on how to handle your takeaway meal safely.
