The Care Group needs new members! I am sure most of the village are aware of the Care Group and how we work. In a nutshell we have a group of volunteer drivers who take those villagers who do not drive or are infirm to medical appointments which include doctors, dentists and hospital appointments.
We have 3 members on duty each month who only have to cover a total of 2 months a year. Our optimum membership number is 18 but unfortunately we have had to say goodbye to some of our team for next year. Although we have been lucky to recruit some new members this month we preferably need at least 1 more to take on the 2 remaining months. We also have a handover meeting/coffee morning once a month (which is not obligatory to attend!)
If you feel you can spare a bit of time and would like to know more about our valuable service please give me a call for a chat on 561281.
The members on duty for December are:
Liz Mulford 564390; Veronica Parker 560278; Maureen Brooking 564010
The next meeting will be Monday 2nd December 10.30am at Walnut Tree Barn and our combined meeting and AGM will be Monday 6th January at Bentworth Hall.
