Foodbank SOS – The Foodbank warehouse is very low on stock so please make a donation if you are able, especially UHT milk, tinned tomatoes, cartons of fruit juice, tinned meat and tinned vegetables, but anything is most welcome. Also as demand for parcels in this area has risen we are about to set up a delivery service for food parcels and need volunteers, who can drive.  If you could help please contact Jan & John Collins 01502 725731 or jan.john.collins@btinternet.com
