We are probably your neighbours or friends! Together with the Parish Council, we are helping to support anyone in the village who might need it during this challenging time. We have dropped this flyer through all your letterboxes.
If you are over 70 and/or with underlying health issues and are in self isolation, we can collect your prescriptions and your shopping, have a chat on the phone or anything else we might be able to safely do to help you.
Even if you are not in those categories, but live alone and are missing the company of others, we will be looking out for you.
Our numbers are on this page in case you have mislaid your flyer. Give us a call!
This helpful advice was written by a local surgery where one of the nurses in our village works.

Some volunteer home numbers for those who prefer calling a landline
After many residents asked how they could repay our brilliant Volunteer Team for their support during this time, the Social Centre have set up a Just Giving Page for donations.
The team have said they do not need payment! So, any funds raised will be used for deserving causes during or after the current situation. Over £300 has been raised so far, so thank you everyone. Here is the link if you would like to donate.
We can also collect shopping for those in self isolation, either from The Star (who will also deliver) or from a supermarket.
We can also pick up your click and collect orders. We just need your name, address and order numbers.
Again, the fewer trips we all make in and of the village, the lower the chance of the virus making its way amongst us. If those of us who aren’t in SI can pool shopping trips with friends and neighbours, this will really help too.
Local volunteers are busy doing great things. Tracy Shipton, a nurse in the village, wanted to thank ‘Bredon Hill Bags for NHS’ whom she said “have kindly given me some lovingly made uniform bags, head bands and have donated hand creams, lotions & potions and socks for all the staff and residents where I work as a nurse. It is very much appreciated ❤“
More news coming soon about the various projects that are underway in our local area and how you can get involved. There is a lot of information to extract, contacts to establish, etc! Until then, here are links to some of the volunteer facebook pages.
