WRVS - Vulnerable people living in Wragby will now be able to call for help - thanks to big-hearted volunteers from the WRVS.

Their ‘‘Good Neighbour’ scheme now offers a home visiting service to residents who could benefit from support.

Staffed by trained and registered volunteers, the scheme will help people with a variety of needs, including visits to hospital, prescription pick-ups and small DIY jobs.

The scheme has proved popular in various other places and officials have high hopes it will attract plenty of interest in Wragby. Anyone wanting to call the service can telephone 01673 858607.

East Barkwith

The first meeting of the new year for the Barkwith and District Gardeners Association, due to be held on Friday, was postponed as the forecast threatened severe weather conditions.

It has now been re-arranged for this Friday, February 1, 7.30pm in the village hall as a social evening with a cheese and wine buffet.

There will be quizzes for added interest and as a change from the usual raffle, a tombola is planned too.
