The heroic efforts of so many 'Tattenhallers' are worthy of consideration as we come to the end of a week which has witnessed a situation which has literally changed by the hour (or so it would seem).

Newspapers are still being delivered, milk arrives on the doorstep, our cheery postal service team continue to pop letters through our letterboxes (shorts and gloves seems to have been the norm this week), the Parish News and PPG Newsletter were circulated, the medical service teams at both the Surgery and at the Well Pharmacy are stoic, the Tattenhall Community Volunteer Group is on hand, Alison continues to create culinary delights, and what sounded like the whole village took to their front doors to applaud the NHS on Thursday ........the list goes on and on ... we even have an online Sermon available from Father Lameck (well done)!

Special recognition, however, for the team (and it is an entire team) of individuals who are supplying, stocking, packing, delivering and keeping many of us fed and watered from SPAR has surpassed the wildest of expectations!

Tired they might be BUT congratulations to them in particular.

Update on deliveries for the coming days .... (noting they are all having a well-earned rest on Sunday)


  • Phone times stay the same CLICK HERE
  • Two staff will now person the phonelines
  • Two staff will be picking and packing your orders
  • Two staff will be delivering your home deliveries from Monday
  • They are also now taking card payments over the phone so that all can keep socially distanced and speed up the entire process

From Tattenhall Online — we are indebted to you all!

Phil Bunt sent us a few lockdown general photos he took of the village by drone from the Flacca in mid-May. Phil is registered with the civil aviation authority to fly drones responsibly and safely within the law.Will we ever see such scenes again? Let's hope not, even though they are magnificent in their own way. Thanks to Phil, we have this historical record to remind us of the effort...
