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: r.browning@hotmail.com  so she knows who is active in the village.  Thank you.
