19/05/2020 - Supermarket Delivery Scheme Trial


Two supermarkets are trialling delivery schemes through Lewes Council in partnership with DEFRA - Tesco and Iceland.

The Tesco scheme is already up and running and arrangements for the Iceland scheme are being finalised and will be launched shortly.

The schemes are targeted at meeting the longer term needs of a wide range of vulnerable customers who are unable to benefit from the provision being made for the tier 1 shielded residents. This group includes both individuals and households who are unable to access food because they are self-isolating at home or because they are following enhanced social distancing rules. Those able to benefit from the trial must be able to pay for their orders and be comfortable using online shopping.

Access to each of the schemes is operated via direct referral from the Community Hub only so any customers who feel that they fit the criteria should contact the Council by ringing 01273 099956. The Community Hub team will check their eligibility and make the referral as appropriate.

Just over a mile away from the town of Lewes and nestling at the foot of the Sussex Downs, Kingston is protected on its northern and western sides by high ranges of hills.


Many of the older houses are in the original village centre "The Street", with an interesting and picturesque mix of cottages and larger farmhouses as well as the local 14th Century pub The Juggs and St Pancras Church.


The village offers a number of recreational facilities through its two greens, parish hall and community pavilion as well as being an ideal base for walkers and cyclists to explore the beautiful South Downs and surrounding areas.
