A NEW ultra-local community food delivery service stated this week in two districts of an East Lancashire town.

'Bradley Food 2 Go' supplies those who live in the Bradley and Hodge House areas of Nelson who are self-isolating and unable to maintain meals through ill health, poor mobility or lack of money.

The scheme is funded by Bradley Big Local and run by Bradley Big Local Community Land Trust.

Cllr Mohammed Iqbal, leader of Pendle Council, said: “These types of initiatives which support the community are so important at this time and I wholly welcome them. 'Bradley Food 2 Go' is a fantastic example of how groups are reaching out and offering help to those who need it.”

Waqas Arshad, Chair of Bradley Big Local, said: “We want to make sure that anyone in Bradley or Hodge House who is isolated because of ill health or can’t afford food, can get hot meals.

“If you live in the area and would benefit from a pre-cooked hot meal, or you know someone who would, contact us!”
