The phone may be busy - email is best!!
Requests for or from people in "self-isolation" will be accepted.
Please give details of name, address, contact phone and number of people.
The Community Larder will open as usual for people in food emergency who do not have an address for delivery.
(1.30-3.00pm on Mondays and Fridays).
No additional people - except if really necessary, one helper per client. Please enter 1 person at a time; the hall is laid out to keep people well separated.
Deliveries are prepared Monday, Fridays and midweek.
Delivered food will be left on the recipient's doorstep - should be enough for a week.
Recipient will be alerted by mobile phone, (rather than banging on door!)
Food donations (non-perishable, tins or packets) are very welcome.
Please deliver Monday or Friday, 10.30-12.30.
There is a table in the centre of the hall to minimise interactions, make sure to keep 2m distanced
Money donations are best by bank transfer (BACS); email as below for details.
Cash and cheques are also welcome

To volunteer please email "info" as below or phone 07787 882075
Currently (15th May) we have plenty of offers, but who knows how this will progress?
We may need to add more shifts, volunteers may have to retire in isolation!
PLEASE arrange volunteering by email, do not just turn up!
Volunteers are separated into sparingly staffed shifts; the timing varies.
Now working spaced out !!
