Want to help your neighbour, but don’t know how to let them know?

Chilworth has lots of ideas for helping your neighbours –

Village-wide:  Chilworth Care Committee will be sending out a leaflet to every household, asking for volunteers to go on the Village Register

Street/Road/Lane wide:  See on this website how to set up a WhatsApp group, to keep in touch with your near neighbours by mobile phone

As an individual: Please find a form below that has been shared with us by our Albury neighbours that you could print out, and use to push through your neighbours’ doors.  However, please be sure to identify yourself clearly and maybe offer some verification because unfortunately there have been examples of scams.  Click on the image to enlarge and print.  Please also consider letting Cathy Brown from the Care Committee know you’re helping:  so she knows who is active in the village.  Thank you.

Sorry – Duck Race 2020 cancelled

In line with government advice, we are cancelling the Duck Race this year.

Our sponsors, Seymours, have kindly offered to defer their offer of sponsorship until we can hold the event – maybe in September next year.

We hope we can bring back the event, better than before!

The ducks are sorry they can’t perform again this year, but will practise their technique.  Which colour will win next time??
