A delivery service for essential food which was started by a Hertfordshire couple during lockdown has been turned into a great success.

Herts Essential Deliveries was created to provide food for people in need during lockdown. Picture: Herts Essential DeliveriesHerts Essential Deliveries was created to provide food for people in need during lockdown. Picture: Herts Essential Deliveries

Tina came up with Herts Essential Deliveries when people started stock piling loo roll and pasta at the start of March and mentioned it to her husband Rob, who laughed it off.

Tina, who manages a nursing home, explained that she then encountered an older gentleman who was very fretful about not being able to buy toilet roll yet again.

“I took Rob kicking and screaming back to the wholesaler and purchased a few bits, which we organised in our garage after a mass clear out of rubbish and then Rob created a £1 website.”

Now they have borrowed a warehouse in Hoddesdon and have built up a strong customer base, and Tina says she loves the new challenge.
