The Residents’ Association run a number of regular shopping trips for members to local supermarkets and to Chichester. The service is door to door making it easier for those people who are less mobile and gives more than adequate time for people to do their shopping. Each trip allows at least an hour at the shops to ensure you have plenty of time to get what you need.
Here are the services:
Bognor Regis shops and Morrisons
We go to Bognor town centre and Morrisons every Tuesday. There is a bus at 9.00am and unfortunately this has to stop in Morrisons car park, so you must be able to walk from the car park to the entrance of Morrisons, as well as walk round the store.
Tesco in Bognor Regis
We go to Tesco every Friday with two trips, one at 9.00am and one at 10.00am. This is a very popular service, so please ensure you let John know early if you want to go to Tesco.
The final trip this year will be on 20th December and we will restart on 7th January 2020.
Marks and Spencer Simply Food in Chichester
We run one bus at 9.30 am to go to M&S Simply Food every four weeks on a Wednesday on the following dates;
Nov 13; Dec 11.
The service is very popular, so if you wish to go, phone John on 268768 as soon as possible.
Lidl and Matalan in Bognor Regis
We run the bus every two weeks or so with the dates chosen not to clash with the minibus being used to take people with walking difficulties to the Coffee Mornings.
We pick-up from 9.00am and if there is sufficient demand, we run a second bus picking up from 10.00am.
The bus will run on the following Thursdays;
Nov 21; Dec 5 & 19.
These trips are very popular and you may have to go on a waiting list. We do everything we can to maximise the number of people on each trip and typically will call wait-listed people around 6.00pm the previous day if there is space.
In order to help with the costs of running the service we ask for a donation of £2 per person for all trips.
