UPDATED supermarket opening times

Last week the Government rightly recognised the huge efforts of our social care workers who provide an invaluable service to our community – especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of the Action Plan, Government urged all supermarkets to give priority access to social care staff as well as NHS workers, where they have not already. Over the last week I have therefore been back in touch with the supermarkets across Sevenoaks and Swanley to update the below opening times, and ensure that this is being taken into account by them.

I hope this is helpful, and do let me know if you or anyone you know is experiencing any issues accessing food during these difficult times. Either email my office on laura.trott.mp@parliament.uk, or give us a call on 020 7219 4964.
