Congresbury Methodist Church have collected food for the Weston Food Bank for quite some time. With the current COVID19 situation many people are self isolating, including the organisers, John & Kath Chaplin. So it is suggested the way forward to help the Foodbank, for the time being at least, is by going online and making monetary donations. The need for donations &/or food is getting greater daily. John & Kath thank everyone, on behalf of the Food Bank, for the donations over recent years, but are sorry they personally cannot deliver any produce at the moment.
Is there is anyone who feels that they can take over the deliveries,? If so that would be great – please email John or Kath on email@example.com or phone 01934 830128

The National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team is releasing more call blockers for the vulnerable and elderly today, Friday 13th March 2019.
These were a huge success last year and they ran out very quickly.
Applications can be made through their website:
A trueCall Secure call blocker is a unit that filters unwanted scam and nuisance phone calls from your landline. It allows you to set a trusted caller list for friends, family members, GPs and any other trusted contacts. The unit plugs into an existing phone and phone line and can work alongside broadband or lifeline/pendant devices that are already installed. These are intended more for the vulnerable and elder, and those receiving a high level of nuisance calls.
