Yes, you can.
We have a four-week menu plan, but you can personalise your own menu to suit your taste or your dietary requirements.
We try to stick to regular delivery times, but sometimes road closures and bad weather can cause delays.
We will always contact you and keep you informed if there are any hold-ups.
Please contact the Meals on Wheels Service as soon as possible to let us know that you need to cancel a meal, and - if possible - the length of time you wish to cancel.
If meals are not cancelled before 9.30am on the day of delivery they will still incur a charge.
