Wiltshire Good Neighbours Update

Please see the following update from Lucy Hawkins, Marlborough Rural Community Area Good Neighbour co-ordinator:

Over the past months I have been supporting clients who are socially isolated. I have been identifying local support groups, interest groups and social opportunities for clients, and then setting up transport to get them to the groups.

We have also, as a Scheme, started preparing clients for the colder weather, and have been thinking about house maintenance, fuel bills and how to keep safe in winter.

I have also established a pub community lunch in one of the villages in the Marlborough Area, which now meets monthly and appeals to a good number of people. This came about in response to village members voicing an unmet need for an opportunity to meet during the daytime on an on-going basis.

I undertook some local research and concluded that there was enough interest to invest in the idea. The pub landlord and landlady have been very positive about the idea and have provided delicious subsidised meals along with a welcoming atmosphere.

Please do feel to contact me or pass on my details to anyone who might be interested.
