Truck now picks up empty crates

Truck driver Ricky from Canterbury Freight now comes every Wednesday to pickup the pallets and empty crates from the CSFVC packing centre to return them for a credit. At the moment it is around 12.30pm but it is hoped it may be possible in future to be at 11am so someone from the co-op can be around to sign the returns docket.
