We are in the process of creating an informal network of good neighbours to provide help and

support when necessary. If you are able to offer to help with any of the following:


Collections / Deliveries / Shopping / Transport / Neighbourly support / Volunteering in the village shop please email with your contact details (tel. and address).


For Appleton with Eaton:      [email protected]

For Besselsleigh:                  [email protected]

Please also remember to indicate what you would be prepared to help with.


We understand there are many good neighbours out there and if you are already in close contact with someone who is elderly, self isolating or vulnerable please let us know to avoid duplication of effort.

All involved in this support wish to make it VERY clear that they are committed to adhering to the Government’s isolation policy and all other Government and NHS guidelines.
