Catbrook and District Memorial Hall Closure
Six weeks ago following the decision to close the village hall to future events, Catbrook Cares was set up to offer assistance and support to those in our community who might need help because of the impact of the Covid-19 virus outbreak across the UK.
Requests for volunteers were made and over 40 people came forward who were willing to offer their help with such activities as shopping, prescription collection, posting parcels/letters, dog walking and a friendly chat. A helpline phone number and email pages went live on the hall website from the 15th March and we have received 2 to 3 requests for assistance each week which have been allocated to various volunteers.
Volunteers have also made contact with a number of local firms to arrange deliveries of food and products to the village hall which are then delivered to residents when needed. In particular Evans of Monmouth who deliver fantastic veg boxes every fortnight and Wigmores Bakery for their fresh bread delivery.
As we approach a time when things might start improving we would like to thank everyone for all of their help and assistance during this difficult time, the community has certainly risen to the challenges it is facing. In the meantime Catbrook Cares will remain active and is available to anyone needing help so if you know of someone who might not know what support is available please let them know.
