Need Assistance ?

Please let us know if you need any other help in ANY way – a phone call, other provisions, prescription pick ups – no request is too small if it helps you stay safe! At the same time, we are a great community and these testing times will show this: there are people around you who are vulnerable, self-isolating and new to the area, and we are sure they will be cared for and helped as needed by their neighbours.

If you do require assistance then please follow this link to the contact form

 

Rev Madeline Bray, St Andrews' Vicar is also available for anyone who might like a chat, or to say a prayer and other spiritual help.

Gordon is also hoping to bake small batches of sourdough bread - the flour was ordered before the lockdown but unfoatunately will not be delivered until week commncing 20 April due to demand on the flour mill. In preactice this means the first batches of bread will be week commencing 4 May.
