Covid-19 Support

Good Neighbours Scheme

Given the current situation we are launching our Good Neighbours Scheme to help those in need.

We would like to have a co-ordinated approach to help those who need it in our community. Due to the daily changing situation we are asking for volunteers to help with some important tasks; whether this be a friendly voice over the phone, collecting shopping for those who are unable to, or helping co-ordinate our actions.

Sharon has offered a home isolation shopping delivery service. Details are below and volunteers could, for example, help with those deliveries.

If you would be willing to help the local community, please contact David James on davejames@me.com or 07544 256 325.

We are setting up a central phone number which can be used to speak to a co-ordinator who can put you in touch with someone who can help if you are in need.

That number is 07379 680 693

Home Isolation Shopping Delivery Scheme

We are co-ordinating a home shopping delivery scheme from the shop and PO in Wilbarston.

If you are self-isolating and wish us to do your shopping for you we have the facilities and access to our wholesaler, as well as our local suppliers of bread, eggs and milk.

You will need to ring us and place your order and we will arrange a mutually convenient time to deliver to your doorstep.

We can also do gas/electricity/telephone top ups, cash withdrawals and bill payments, post letters/parcels, etc. Please ring us if you require these services.

Stay safe and remember we are here for you. We are all one community.

Parish Council Elections

These have been delayed for twelve months but there will still be vacancies on the council and if you are interested please call any of the numbers in the current poster/leaflet. We don't know the timing exactly because the situation keeps changing but it will be for a period of no more than one year, so an ideal time to test the water without committing to five.
