The scheme is run by a voluntary group of village residents who want to help people in their local community and provide a better quality of life by offering them support with everyday tasks. One off jobs could be changing a lightbulb, re-tuning a TV, fixing a gate latch, filling in forms, writing letters, or more regular like providing a lift, collecting prescriptions, getting library books, befriending and so many more little bits that worry people on a day to day basis but can be fixed easily by a volunteer.


The Scheme organised a very successful meeting on Saturday 22nd October where the village came together with community spirit, with ideas and offers to support each other through the challenges we may face this winter.  The village will provide Warm Spaces and events.  Please check the events calendar on this website.
