We’ve all been eyeing it up, so maybe now is the time to break into that special Christmas stash and pour ourselves all a large drink. We’ve all just learned of the new Tier 4 restrictions for London, changing the festive plans of many, and requiring Angel Central stores to close their doors, with takeaway and delivery services open only.

We’re encouraging everyone to stay at home and stop the spread, while maintaining a safe shopping environment for those using click-and-collect and takeaway services. Keep an eye on our social media for updates and information, including any changes to opening times or government guidelines.

These tighter restrictions will result in many disrupted and cancelled plans, and people left isolated from family and friends. With many ‘big shops’ already done, some will be left with food going to waste, while others will find it too late to pull together a last minute Christmas. Wherever we can Angel Central will support our locals and the wider Islington community in ensuring these people are not forgotten. We’ll share information and resources online, with contributions most welcome.

Don’t forget you can support local food banks at home with Angel Central’s Christmas karaoke filter! Find out more.
