Practical information about going shopping

 

Shopping locally and buying locally sourced products is a good way to improve your lifestyle and support local suppliers.

A short walk or cycle could take you to your local Post Office and mini supermarket.

There are shops just a short walk from your home within the Wyndham Park area. Using a rucksack or panniers on your bike can help you carry your shopping home.

For bigger purchases, why not do your shopping online and have it delivered to your door? This not only avoids having to travel to the shops but also the queues at the tills, and can even save you money by encouraging you to stick to a budget as the cost is tallied up as you go along. Most national supermarkets have an online service.

You could also link up with neighbours for a big shop, taking it in turns to drive, thereby cutting congestion and the cost of fuel.
