Police urge public to report issues online

The majority of Avon & Somerset police enquiry offices have been closed in a bid to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Four of them – Bristol, Patchway, Bridgwater and Yeovil – will remain open seven days a week, but should only be used if absolutely essential. To report an incident click here or for more information click here

Food Bank help please

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 jandkchaplin@hotmail.com or phone 01934 830128

Community Café – temporary closure

We have taken the decision to close the Community Café for the foreseeable future due to the latest Government advice issued to stop non-essential contact with others. We will re-open as soon as practically possible.

Senior Citizens Lunch Club

With regret, due to the current coronavirus situation, the Senior Citizens Lunch Club which is usually held in the Old School Rooms, has been suspended forthwith. Members will be advised when we are able to continue.

DUE TO THE CURRENT CLIMATE REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS BUG WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED AND REGRET WE NEED TO POSTPONE THE WEEKLY O-90s COFFEE MORNINGS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE BUT WILL INFORM YOU ALL WHEN WE RETURN TO NORMAL. PLEASE LET ANYONE YOU KNOW THAT YOU THINK MAY NOT KNOW THIS All our love and best wishes John and Kathleen

Call Blocker

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:

 www.FriendsAgainstScams.org.uk/callblocker

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.
