Good Neighbour Scheme

Good Neighbour Scheme

A number of people are interested in forming a new voluntary group to support those who feel isolated in the community, initially in St Weonards, Pencoyd, Garway, Orcop and Tretire.  The group would be formed of volunteers to help with those little pod jobs in a practical way.  It is not intended to provide a professional handyman service but more a “good neighbour” scheme.  Someone to call on to help out now and again.  Nor is it planned to provide a transport service or babysitting.  The service will evolve as the needs of the community are made clear.  The service will be available to all ages in the community and accessed by phone.

There will also be social events and get togethers and some fundraising although it is hoped to access a grant for the start up.

If you are interested in joining this innovative and new group please contact Jane Rigler 01981 241310 or email janehrigler@gmail.com
