We are Supermarket based in the small market town of Hythe. We have a small cafe where the people of Hythe love to come and have a coffee over breakfast or enjoy a lunch before they do their daily or weekly shop. Our store has a community feel where customers come in daily for their supplies and often chat with our Partners in the store. At Waitrose we care about our community and if you visit us you will see that we donate to three local charities every month, through our community matters scheme. Hythe has an elderly population and is a town where people come to retire. Becoming part of the Dementia Forum in Hythe we hope we can improve our understanding of Dementia and improve the assistance we offer to our Customers living with this disease.
