Village Information

Community Connections Volunteer Group

Community Connections Your neighbourly contact number is 01 300 345 850 Community Connections is your local, up and running, friendly, informal, self help group, for the village - by the village. As we are “self isolating” due to our ‘full house’ of pre existing conditions, we are offering to act as dedicated co-ordinators for all villagers who may need support. And, most importantly, for all those who are kindly offering to help, including our dedicated Parish Councillors who have published their individual phone numbers. But we will need even more going forward. Maybe you could be a helper too? Just by phoning a friend in need, a neighbour or acquaintance or picking something up from the shop? We are definitely all going to need to gear-up for the difficult time ahead, as we all start to understand the true ramifications of this virus. Things are moving very fast now - so use this phone number, in the first instance, for help and advice, and we will do our best to put you in contact with all the right people at the right time. Now is the time for us all to work together, in a focused and co-ordinated way. We need to look out for and support all our friends and neighbours. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Stay well and happy. Chris and Janey Hildred
