We’re delivering essentials

Great news! Alcohol delivery has been deemed ‘essential’ during the #CoVid #lockdown. The government is even easing off-sales restrictions for licensed businesses that aren’t off-licensed – like us! This means we’ll be offering a delivery service for the duration of the lockdown. And….since we’re delivering the ‘essential’ beer and wine, why not pick up a toy, game, puzzle, arts supply, etc. with your delivery? Have a look at these beer and wine selections available for delivery: they happen to be pictured with a sample of our other goods arranged by age category.

Ordering and Delivery details:

I don’t plan on running an online shop, so this is all ad hoc in light of the current situation. Bear with me as I work out the best way to provide a delivery service…

I can bring you a ‘mobile shop’ stocked along a theme, such as: arts and activity books; jigsaw puzzles and board games; pre-school aged toys and activities; or tailored to your needs. I’m always happy to deliver individually ordered items too. You can request a visit via email, comments section here, DM on Instagram, and text or call 0754 625 6685. If you have neighbours you know might need a Joy delivery, please let them know, we could be quite efficient if we’re getting streets organised!

When I come to your house we’ll need to coordinate our ‘social distance’: I’ll message you once outside, then you and one child at a time can shop the contents of my ‘shop’ whilst I maintain a 2m social distance, I will also don a respirator if you request this before my visit (I can’t breathe while wearing it cycling). All my software runs on mobile data so I can ring up your purchase from that distance and send it to the card reader. At each stop, I will wrap the card reader in a new piece of plastic wrap which I will ask you to dispose of once we’ve processed your payment.

If you know I have an item you’d like specifically, I will be happy to deliver anything from the shop you request.

Since I’m not on much social media, I’d appreciate any re-posts of this to places you think it might be needed.

Peace, love, and joy!

  1. Hi. Do you have any kites available to deliver at all please? I would be more than happy to add some booze to the order to make it worth the delivery too! Thanks.


  2. Hello! I was wondering whether you would do a delivery on Sunday 19th April? It’s my son’s 4th birthday and obviously we can’t have a party. It’d be lovely if you could come by and he could choose some toys as his birthday presents. Thank you!


  3. I’m itching for a decent Jigsaw puzzle – at least 1000 pieces, ideally fine art, or just a really corny cottage garden! I think you’re coming to our street on Sunday anyway 🙂


    1. I am doing a couple of rounds on Sunday. Happy to bring a puzzle selection – corny cottages have been in demand I’ll see what I can do!! You can WhatsApp/ message me at 07546 256685
