NEW PROCEDURES TO KEEP US ALL AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE
The management team have worked out a new schedule to reduce overlap times in order to adhere as much as possible to social distancing. We hope this will in turn reduce the risk of spreading a virus to help keep Benenden's open as much as possible to meet residents' needs.
This will allow our reduced staff to work hard behind the scenes on cleaning and stocking up on our essentials so that we can provide the best service we can in this difficult period.
We are only allowing 2 customers in the shop at any one time and asking to please keep 2m between yourself and others.
TELEPHONE ORDERS FOR COLLECTION & HOME DELIVERIES
Many people have kindly volunteered to help take orders and deliver goods to our vulnerable residents, who cannot leave their homes. We have set up telephone card payments in order that your orders can be placed and paid for instantly and safely. We ask that orders are placed the day before the order is needed, unless especially URGENT. The cafe has frozen meals available to cook at home (see above).
Thank you from all of us at Benenden’s
