Eastcombe Village News

There will be no more Eastcombe, Bussage and Brownshill newsletters until further notice. Any subs due will be collected at delivery of the first issue for the year.

An Eastcombe Good Neighbours group is being set up by the Eastcombe Village Group with support from the Parish Council. The aim of the group is to provide the vulnerable and those who are self-isolating within the village with help and support. Our volunteers could offer to undertake practical actions like delivering shopping (from Eastcombe Stores), collecting prescriptions or possibly just being prepared to ring up people who are isolated and who would like a friendly chat.

If you would consider becoming a volunteer to help provide that support please email and let us know your name, address in the village and your landline telephone contact number. It is our hope that we get enough volunteers to be able to assign pairs to a particular street or area of the village.
