Walter Rose & Son Offer a Helping Hand to Chefs and Their Families in Self-isolation
The Cook family at Walter Rose and Son are delighted to offer a free home delivery service for customers aimed at minimising the spread of Coronavirus.
The award-winning butchers shop in Devizes is taking their locally sourced, top quality meat, fish and delicatessen items to addresses up and down the country as concerns grow about Covid-19 infection.
The Cook family have run the butchers shop on Sidmouth Street, Devizes for forty-four years, and Walter Rose prides itself on being at the heart of the community as well as professional kitchens on a national level. Today, brothers Jack and Charlie Cook head-up the business as a local retail and national online and catering butchers.
Top quality local beef, lamb, pork and poultry is on offer, as well as award-winning sausages in seventeen varieties, fresh Cornish fish and a fully stocked deli counter with over fifty different cheeses and a fantastic selection of condiments, biscuits and sweet treats. Eating great quality produce not only boosts overall health and maintains strength but helps to cheer people up in these uncertain times.
Jack Cook (pictured) said: “Self-isolation is an act of care for your community, as well as yourself.
“Our more vulnerable customers are anxious about visiting some shops and worried about the possibility of having to stay at home at some point in the future.
“Offering delivery to the door and picking up other essential items en route, while Covid-19 is around is our attempt to reassure and thank our customers for taking the responsible step of self-isolating.
“If we all think of our community and each other first, rather than just ourselves, we believe our whole society will cope much better.”
Brother, Charlie Cook added: “It is important that we all do our bit to help each other in tough times like these.
“This kind of togetherness is the kind of glue that holds everyone together.
“Using our fleet of twenty-five refrigerated vans to ensure we deliver fresh produce to our customers in perfect condition seems the natural thing to do and common sense, when residents, especially the elderly and high-risk groups are being advised to stay indoors.
“We’re still here at the end of the phone for a chat and are more than happy for chef customers to call the shop on 01380 722335 to make their personal orders to be delivered to their homes. We can send out price lists if required.
If chefs are in self-isolation, we are happy to leave deliveries on the doorstep and ring bell to let you know that we have arrived!
Payment can be made over the phone on in cash on delivery.
We are fully prepared to deliver immediately and are actively preparing for demand to pick up in the next few weeks.”
