No job too small

Hopefully the impact of the pandemic is now on the wane and Wickham Market can go forward with our Good Neighbours Scheme, as one of the established agencies helping to link people in need with the required assistance. We can organise trips to clinics and the hospital; and we are also happy to respond to other immediate wants round the village like trips to the hairdressers, posting mail and ferrying prescriptions to and from the chemists, as well as ensuring people can access the various social activities which can now thankfully restart. Simply get in touch with the duty phone anchor, they have the experience in finding answers for problems, or simply being an understanding ear on the end of the line. Across the village there are also many hands willing to make light work of other difficulties round the house.

Everyone benefits from being part of a vibrant village community, so we should likewise love to hear from those of you who feel they would like to contribute and play a role in this enterprise. Volunteers new to the village will quickly become integrated and get to know new friends. We provided a Wickham Market Good Neighbours Scheme stall at the market on 21 Aug 21. There was considerable interest shown about what we did, we received over £50 in donations, and we may have recruited one or two more volunteers.

Our aim is that ultimately all will gain.
