If you are new to the village and are not sure how to reach out to a volunteer, please contact me and I will connect you. Every household has a volunteer allocated – even the volunteers! Equally, if you would like to volunteer in some way please let me know using the contact details below.
Although lockdown eased for a while over the summer months, we agreed to keep our village volunteer network in place. That has proved to be prudent as the second wave of the pandemic has kicked in. If national or local lockdown measures tighten further, and as a result, you feel you need some help, please don’t hesitate to ask your volunteer in the first instance, or myself.
One of our volunteers is Jonny Farrow. He has been an absolute stalwart and has continued to provide a prescription service throughout the summer. The Village Community Fund presented Jonny with a voucher from John Lewis and some of his favourite tipple in acknowledgement and thanks of all the time and work he has given in collecting/delivering prescriptions to the village since the commencement of Lockdown in March. Jonny has also undertaken other tasks such as taking post to the Post Office and even hearing aids to be mended. Many of those he has supported have expressed their gratitude and asked me to pass on their thanks to him.
Jonny Farrow has very kindly volunteered to continue collecting prescriptions on a Wednesday and Thursday of each week. It may be that the day/time is flexible as he may have other commitments, but we will endeavour to collect on the designated day for each Surgery.
Wednesday – White Horse Surgery, Faringdon
Thursday – Elm Surgery, Shrivenham
I compile the list for Jonny each week and if he is unable to go, I will do so.
