There is the option to have an essentials box delivered for those who are self-isolating.

Newmarket Town Council have paired up with The Jockey Club and Tesco in order to ensure those staying indoors to protect themselves and others can have essentials delivered to their door.

The boxes will contain a selection of items based on current availability of products, therefore we are unable to specify the exact contents of each box. However the purchaser will receive a variety of different foods in each box.

Typically a box for £30 should feed 2 adults for one week and a box for £20 a single person

  • Your name and full address,  including post code
