South Glos Council are supporting a community help line which can provide additional support, such as food parcels and vouchers, where the lockdown is causing financial stress. Call 03335 774666, lines are open 11am to 7pm weekdays and 12am to 6pm weekends.
The Olde Inne are providing meals for take-away. As well as Pizzas during the week they are doing a full Sunday Roast, on Sundays. I understand the beer (bring your own jug) is amazingly cheap.
We can arrange to have bread from Hobbs Bakery delivered to you at your home. Please contact Alison on 312195 if you would like to get some bread.
A contribution from Dee Powell: I have a friend who is a chef and lives in Pucklechurch, and he orders meat from his butchers for delivery to peoples homes. His name is Tim Newton and his number is 07554 890740. He would need orders by 5pm on Wednesday, and he would deliver on either the Thursday or the Friday. Payment would be either cash or BACS. His price list can be seen here.
A selection of face masks is available from the Olde Inne; these have been made by volunteers in the village. A charity box is by the masks and a donation would be appreciated. They can be collected on Friday and Saturday from 5pm, and on Sunday 12-4pm.
