Village Action: Being a good neighbour

FRAMPTON Cotterell Good Neighbours is a voluntary scheme run by Village Action for the people of the village.

It is free to those who use it.

A group of volunteers from Village Action make regular visits to some of our older and more isolated residents. Some visit weekly for an hour or two, some fortnightly.

We started about five years ago and now have about 45 volunteers. Some lovely friendships have been formed.

All involved look forward to, and get a lot out of the visits. We can’t offer home or personal care but we do offer friendship, regular contact and help with some of the little things in life!

If you know anyone who is now living alone and who would enjoy having a regular visitor please email vagoodneighbours@gmail.comor phone 0743 288 8586 and leave details so we can get back to you.

Village Action is supported by Frampton Cotterell Parish Council, South Gloucestershire Council and the Quartet Community Foundation.
