A village shop is offering phone orders and home deliveries to those who are stuck inside due to the coronavirus.
Blagon Stores is offering doorstep deliveries to Blagdon, Butcombe, Burrington, Aldwick and Ubley.
Owner Johanna Brown said: “People are welcome to give us a call and we will take their order and card payment over the phone and deliver whatever items they want to them.
“It’s early days, but talking to customers, we think this is going to be used a lot in the future.
“We’ve got a fair few customers who are over 70.”
