As the major Covid-19 pandemic spread across the UK Cromarty Care Project developed systems to support the community.
A group of volunteers deliver pre-ordered groceries Monday - Friday. Order your groceries by phoning Cromarty Stores on 01381 600550 in the morning.
A group of volunteers deliver pre-ordered newspapers every morning Monday - Saturday. Order your newspapers by phoning Nigel Shapcott on 01381 600760 or completing a form in store. This stopped when we moved to phase 2 re-opening.
The North Highland Initiative community support programme has funded the setting up and running of both the newspaper and grocery delivery projects.
