Local milkman helps feed Plymouth

    Steve Cornew says demand for deliveries has grown by 20% during lockdown

    A Plymouth milkman has been going above and beyond to help feed the city during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Steve Cornew says 55,000 new customers have signed up for deliveries with Milk & More Plymouth Fulfilment Centre since the start of lockdown.

    Steve has been in the business for over 40 years and become a trusted figure in the community, as well as the 'eyes and ears' of his round in central Plymouth.

    Over the years, Steve has helped a customer who has locked themselves out from their house, helped catch wanted criminals and become a much-loved member of the community - all while managing a local football team and winning a Pride of Plymouth award in 2014.
    Steve says:

    "It makes me incredibly proud that myself and the team at Milk & More's Plymouth Fulfilment Centre have been able to play a part in feeding the residents of Plymouth.

    "Delivering customers their milk and grocery products to their doorstep has always been my number one priority, but it has never been more vital than now."
