We continue to thank everyone who has helped to make this possible, by their donations of money, food and personal hygiene items for adults and babies.  We have been astounded by people’s generosity at this time. This is community working together at its very best.

But this is still ongoing during the Government restrictions and your help is still needed.

If you wish and are able to make a financial donation, please contact our Treasurer Jane Lowther click here  or phone 01622 832974 and she will give you the details to make a simple and secure bank transfer. If you can only offer cash - please discuss that with Jane as to how the transaction can be made.

The Food Bank is able to accept goods outside the main school door, during the normal school hours of 9am - 12 noon.  All items are gratefully received, but goods particularly required are: Washing powder or liquid(smaller sizes if possible please); Nappies; Baby Milk; Toilet Roll; Pasta; Rice; Cooking Sauces

The Food Bank at the school will be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, between 9am and 12 noon. Please observe social distancing of 2 metres at all times.


In the meantime we thank all villagers, local shops and community initiatives who have made generous donations both financially and in food items to this Food Bank. 


Thank you to all the families in the village who have used/are using the new Foodbank. Thank you for your patience while things were set-up and procedures put in place - we are pleased to say that, now it is established, everything is running well.  The Church, Parish Council, Children’s Centre and School, who are all jointly involved with this are delighted that you, those families who need it the very most, have been able to utilise the facilities, and that as a community we have been able to help meet your needs.
