If someone is able to visit a shop for you, they should if possible pay by contactless card to avoid them or the assistant handling money.
The two pharmacies are also open but the arrangements are different at each and might change. You have to queue outside and wait for someone to come to the door to serve you. They too will arrange deliveries:
Some other shops, while closed, are still taking orders over the phone, to be paid by card. E.g. some cafes are doing takeaways, and the museum bookshop will order any book published in the UK and deliver it to you (01834 860500 – leave a message if necessary – or email firstname.lastname@example.org ) If you want something from one of the other shops, it’s worth phoning them to see.
