Practical help

Help for people self-isolating:

Over the coming weeks some, if not many, people and/or families in the village will need to self-isolate.

Many will be self-sufficient through family and friends, but others will require support with basic tasks such as delivery of groceries, collecting prescriptions, or walking of dogs.

We have established a volunteer network of over 70 people to assist with this.

If you need help please call any of Caroline 720703, Jan 728741 or Jill 728424 or email

If you are unable to leave the home, you can pre-order shopping from York Road Garage/Spar, by completing this form. Please then contact one of the volunteers above to arrange collection and delivery.

This activity is being coordinated by local volunteers. We will match those in need of support with those willing to help. Please note this is for practical help only, not medical advice or support. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered.

If you are able to volunteer

Other Information


Please can people be mindful that everyone is stuck at home at the moment (to state the obvious!) Therefore the impact of any activities that disturb your neighbours are somewhat amplified.  We've had complaints in particular about several bonfires in the village.
