Good Neighbour Schemes are run by local volunteers who provide day to day support for other residents in their area who may need help on an occasional or regular basis. For older people, this support may enable them to live independently in their own homes and communities for longer and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Found, safe and sound, after a frantic 5 days of searching. Karen says: “We are so relieved and want to say how absolutely amazing everyone in the village has been. The kindness, support and determination to help find her has bowled us over. What a wonderful community xx” Updated 8th November
Dear village friends, have you seen our beloved missing cat, Cassie? She was last seen on Friday afternoon on the High Street and it is totally out-of-character for her to disappear. She is a small, friendly tabby with a white bib and front paws. She was wearing a red collar but this may have been lost. Cassie is inquisitive, so might be in a barn, garage or outbuilding. It is also possible she climbed into someone’s car or van. Can you help us by checking? Reward offered. Thank you so much.
