PARISH COUNCIL ACTION ON COVID-19
The Parish Council is here to help and is overseeing the process to make sure that anyone who needs help in the coming weeks and months knows what to do and who to contact.
We have enlisted Help Co-ordinators and are very grateful to Nigel and Angela Findley and to Stefan Povolotsky for agreeing to take on this role.
If you need help of any kind – shopping, deliveries, picking up medication or simply a friendly phone call please contact:
Nigel Findley 07900 554537 or email email@example.com
Angela Findley 07775 863350 or email Angela.firstname.lastname@example.org
Stefan Povolotsky 07460 727374 or email email@example.com
We are also creating a voluntary group who would be prepared to help by making telephone contact, do shopping and make doorstop deliveries without making physical contact. Some of you have already signed up.
This support would be secondary to the emergency services.
Guidance for the volunteers will be based on Public Health England advice. Stored contact details will be used only for this purpose and in confidence.
Should you wish to become a volunteer please contact Julia Evans, the Parish Clerk: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Village Hall is a well equipped venue for social and business events.
Situated in the small Downland village of West Hendred just off the A417 between Wantage and Didcot, the Hall is set in its own land adjacent to the village play park and football pitch. There is a hard-standing car park for 19 cars and a designated disabled parking space. A paved terrace runs the length of the Hall. Two double french doors open onto the terrace and provide easy access to the car park.
The original Hall was demolished and rebuilt in 2004-2005, thanks to local fundraising and donations, and generous grants from The Lottery Fund, DEFRA, WREN, the Vale District Council, OCC and the Parish Council.The new purpose-built Hall was re-opened in June 2005 with the official ribbon cut by Billy Atkins and Kath Rixon, the youngest and oldest members of the same longstanding Hendred family.
The Village Hall is managed by a Committee of trustees and advisers for the benefit of the village and the surrounding area. Any profit is used for the benefit of the local community, for example to help subsidise professional theatre shows for all ages. If you are interested in joining the committee or want to discuss anything which concerns the Hall, please contact Hugh Rees (Chair) or Chantal Ligertwood (Secretary) via email@example.com
