    Do you have any specific question or area of interest or just looking for general experiences?

    I’ve had good experiences myself but a couple of times I have been questioned for not shopping alone as I always go with a carer. The staff have been OK once told I am with a carer but it’s a bit awkward having to tell a stranger in public that I’m with a carer. That said I don’t know what else they could do in that situation, as I understand that they do need to confront people who may be breaking the rules, so I think they are dealing with it quite well.

    Just to confirm, if anyone was unsure, @Emma_vogelmann_scope works for Scope (lucky us!) and this opportunity is safe to participate in :)  Also, I believe it's general experiences in relation to corona-virus, so thank you for sharing that @66Mustang and I'm sorry you've come up against questioning.   I'm glad staff have been more understanding.

    In the first 2 lockdowns we had no choice other than to go to the supermarket as we couldn't get a delivery slot, the last time we went was 23rd Dec, however during this current lockdown we have had no problem getting deliveries. I think some people will have had problems but I'm certain that the stores are doing their very best in difficult situations.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    @woodbine I found it good doing my morrisons  shopping on the amazon app as they use amazon drivers  and sometimes if I am lucky I get my shopping within 2hrs and 40  pound or over is free delivery
