A support network has been established in the village to aid anyone who might need it during the current difficult situation. There is now a group of over forty residents with a variety of skills who, apart from being well known to most of you, are standing by to deliver assistance in any way they can, whether it is with the collection of essential supplies and prescriptions, postage of important items, a practical problem in the home, dog walking or even just the sound of a welcome voice on the end of the phone. If you find yourself needing help or support, please contact one of the four co-ordinators listed below who will then arrange for someone to assist you if they possibly can.
