28 thoughts on “Covid-19 : Otley Providing Essential Services

  1. I think that you’ve embedded an error in the text above, in that the shopping hours are dedicated to the over 70’s, not over 60’s. Also, Sainsbury’s have today advised of an additional priority shopping slot for NHS (and possibly other “key”) staff.

    • Hi, you are correct, however, Leeds Council have taken the decision to cancel all outdoor markets to ensure the safety of the businesses and our community. Kind regards, Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

    • Hi, apologies, I have just found out that the weekly markets are taking place as usual but with food stalls only. Apologies for any confusion, but as you can imagine information is changing daily. Kind regards Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

    • Hi Sue, thanks for letting me know. I’ve added them to the directory. If you know of any other businesses please ask them to give me details of the services they are running and I will add them. Many thanks and stay safe, Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

  2. I am currently self isolating as have cough and I can’t book any slots on any online grocery websites when is the best time to go online and book a delivery slot thanks

    • Hi Clarissa, I’m sorry I don’t know the answer to your question. All I can suggest is maybe calling each of our local supermarkets and asking them if they can do anything to help. Alternatively, our local businesses listed on this page are doing a stirling job at providing home deliveries to those having to self-isolate. Please give them a call too, all will be open today. I’m sure they will do everything they can to help. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, sending best wishes for a speedy recovery. Kind regards, Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

  3. Can you add (beneath the OAOP section):
    Otley Courthouse is offering a similar service for those aged 59 and under, and in need of support, on 01943 467466 (Mon – Fri 10 – 4).

    And maybe rename the section: SUPPORT FOR OVER 60s AND UNDER 60s

    • Thanks David. I have found the photo of the leaflet on the Courthouse Facebook page and have taken some information from there. It’s worth noting that this information is not mentioned on your website. It might be helpful to have the leaflet information featured on your Covid-19 home page pop up in case anyone is looking for this information. Kind regards Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

    • Hi Brian, possibly but can I suggest you contact the individual business/es direct and ask the question, as each one could be different and will will probably depend on how busy they are. Take care & stay safe, Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

  4. The Bondgate bakery link now takes you to their Facebook page, and the ‘menu can be found here’ link goes nowhere. What we need, as they are now asking people to order and pay via their website, is the website address which is bondgatebakery.com
    In case I’ve got this wrong, maybe better check with them.

    • Hi Sue, thanks for your message. I’ve found the most up to date info on their Facebook page so will update the website now. Take care and stay safe. Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)

  5. Just found your page after reading the address in the Wharfedale and just want to say a big thank you to yourselves and a special thank you and a round of applause to all the Otley businesses, individuals and organisations offering so much help in this historical crisis. So lovely to know our Otley community spirit is still going strong and will continue to do so.

    • Hi Pauline, thank you for taking the time to comment on our page, it’s greatly appreciated. I’m really pleased that you’ve found the information helpful and that you’re continuing to support our local independents at this difficult time. Many thanks Rachelle (Otley BID Champion)
