As some of you will probably have heard, the Stag pub has been locked down this week because of the Corona virus and the staff are therefore unable to continue providing a food bank service for villagers.

We are therefore pleased to be able to report that the Cherry Tree pub is going to assume this important role.

So, if you would like to donate canned and/or dry foodstuff, please take it to the Cherry Tree pub on Straight Bit and place the items on the table outside the kitchen door at the side of the pub just beyond the gate.

If you want to nominate a needy resident to receive a food parcel, please telephone Karen on 01628 290360 and she will put together a package and arrange for it to be either collected by the recipient or delivered to their home.
