Covid 19 and Self Isolation

As you are aware we are in unprecedented times and the Parish Council has taken the decision to create a list of Widford residents who may need help or support during the current period of “self-isolation”.

Anyone over the age of 70 or those who may have difficulty due to poor health or pregnancy in arranging various errands, such as, food shopping, collecting prescriptions and walking the dog are asked to make contact on the details below and assistance by local residents can be arranged.

If there are any Widford residents who are not confined to quarters over the next 12 weeks and who feel able to help please let us know using the contact details above.

Finally, if you know of a neighbour or friend who may need support during the coming weeks please ask them first and then for their agreement to be involved as there is no requirement to do so as long as needs are being met.

Be safe and stay well.

Widford Book Exchange



September 2020
Widford Book Exchange

The Book Exchange has attracted lots of interest and we have a great selection of books. Could we please, however, ask people not to put any more books into the kiosk as we are trying to limit numbers so that people can see the collection clearly.

If you would like to donate books could you please hang onto them for a while or get in touch with Jo Birkett on 01920 460147 or 07790 574216 and she will either exchange them or see they go to a holding place until they are needed.

While Covid restrictions are in place we would like all books to be put to one side for a while to reduce the risk of contamination instead of going unchecked into the Exchange.
