Felmersham & Radwell Community Care
Maggie Spoor writes: Felmersham & Radwell
Community Care is a good neighbour scheme which
operates in the parish. Our mobile 'phone (07786 344
176) is manned by local volunteers on a weekly rota.
During the current crisis the response from the
community has been amazing with many offers of help to
anyone self-isolating or affected by the advice to
stay at home. As a result we have been able to create
a register of volunteers in Felmersham and Radwell and
we are immensely grateful to everyone for their help.
Information cards have been delivered to residents
which include the contact details of someone on their
road they can call if needed. The Community Care
phone will continue to be monitored as usual. If
you would like more information please contact:
Jane Carwithen on 782185 or Maggie Spoor on 782031
Felmersham and Radwell playing field
Message from Sam Bance on
behalf of the Village Hall Committee: Until further
notice Felmersham and Radwell playing field will be
closed. This is not something that the Village Hall
Committee wanted to put in place, but this is for the
safety of everyone. This I know is not going to be
easy to police due to the holes in the hedge that have
been made, but please if you see anyone in there can
you politely ask them to leave. Thank you F&RVHC

St Mary's Church, Felmersham
In common with all C of E
churches, "public" worship is suspended in St Mary's
church, Felmersham during the coronavirus emergency.
The Revd Paolo says: "We are
also planning to take our church "out" into the
community for the benefit of all, via community care,
communication and pastoral initiatives, alongside our
partner agencies and churches. Our churches belong to
the villages and exists not only for its member but
also and especially for its "non-members" as quoted by
Archbishop William Temple."
"In all this
adversity, anxiety and confusion let us resolutely
seek to impart God's love and our love through our
actions alongside our prayer and worship."
