Lidl on Bellenden Road have packs of 10 for £7.99. That is the cheapest I have seen them for retail anywhere.

Another vote for face masks from Really Maria on Lordship Lane
1. Local - you can buy in the shop or click and collect - no delivery delays
2. Good for large masks - my husband always has trouble buying hats and spectacles as his head is larger than average. Really Maria’s large was a better fit than the extra large he ordered online. The elastic can be adjusted to give the fit you want - masks with straps round the head not ears are better for spectacle users
3. Only washed once but no issues

Also happy with mine (£10) from Really Maria.

If you're like me and prefer the straps around the ears, she'll happily do them that way.

I looked in Sainsbury's for masks last week and could not find any - which aisle are they in?

Asda - fabric masks £2.75 each 4 disposable masks £3.00

From the tills, go to the pharmacy aisle, go 5m past the "island" and they are on the corner in front of you (earlier this week). I only saw disposable ones at 10 for £8, and hope people also consider reusable ones.

Karavan Eco are selling cotton face masks for £3.00. They come in sizes, nice colours, & individually packaged, but the woman says she'll be restocking size small this week {they only had size large over the weekend}.

> Karavan Eco are selling cotton face masks for £3.00

Were they possibly these, the only one I could find on their website, but marked as £3.99, and only Large left? [karavaneco.co.uk]

If not, any idea how they compare, on grade/thickness of cotton, and number and type of layers

Thoroughly recommend Vanessa and her sister’s masks from SE22Breathe

[instagram.com]

She delivers locally, very reasonably priced. Friendly and responsive, you can drop an email or an instagram message to place the order, and payment can be via PayPal.

I got some lovely washable, cotton masks from someone based locally but found on Twitter

@mugTM

The nail bar on ED Grove - Glamorous nails - is selling their homemade ones for £4. Keen price I thought and proceeds being donated to Celia Hammond Trust.

Thank you Esme, glad you liked your masks.
Jen works Monday to Thursday and was making these masks in her spare time for friends and family, but some neighbours started asking for masks on our road's Whatsapp Group, so she began making additional masks. She buys the material locally, and makes reversible, washable face masks. I have attached photos of the material she currently has, if anyone is interested.

They really are lovely, well made and look nice (unlike most other masks I've seen) and tho I know it's about health and safety from the virus, I also think it's nice to look bright and summery in these times!
