Shrivenham Resilience Plan

Update following Lockdown 3.

As we find ourselves back in lockdown, the Shrivenham Resilience Plan is still in operation to identify, help and support Vulnerable Residents within our community.

The great work being done by the Street Coordinators continues running alongside the support bubbles that have been set up by families and friends to support the most vulnerable.

This latest lockdown comes at a time when most of our local vulnerable residents are already in support bubbles or being helped by Street Coordinators, however we need to make sure that no one has or will, slip through the net and not have the help and support they may need and want.

To that end and as with previous updates, if you do know of a local resident that may not have any help and support, then please make contact with them by simply calling on that neighbour, especially someone who lives alone - you may be providing much needed reassurance.  If you are unable to help and support them, please get in contact with Chris Hand at the Shrivenham Resilience Team [cdhand67@gmail.com or call on 07970 481 707] and they can put someone from in touch with them.

The Shrivenham Emergency Foodbank will not be restarting again as the team are now linked into Faringdon's permanent foodbank so any queries or referrals should be directed to Liz Jenkins at liz_jenkins@btinternet.com or call 07929 180 184.

Food donations can still be made at the Co-op in the High Street, or at Tesco's in Faringdon.

Elm Tree Surgery confirm that they are now getting allocations of the COVID vaccine and they are working through their lists of patients guided by national priorities.  Please do not call the surgery – everyone is listed and will be contacted in due course.

We’ll publish further updates as and when they are received by the Shrivenham Resilience Team.
