Ring 01608 811878 for help from a volunteer

Coronavirus – we are ready to help

If you live in Charlbury and are a vulnerable person, or in self-isolation for any reason, or struggling in any way, we can help you. We have identified a group of 200 kind Charlbury residents who have offered to help. Please ring 01608 811878 and tell us what you need. You can  also email your request to info@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk.

Help can include, but is not excusively:

  • Collecting shopping from local shops
  • Collecting prescriptions or other medicines
  • Putting you in touch with someone to talk to
  • Changing a lightbulb or other small but important tasks

Are there any other suggestions of what we could offer to help people? If you have ideas, please email info@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk

This service is free, though of course you will need to pay for your goods. We can build up a  tab for you and you can pay it later by ringing up and paying by card over the phone, or by transferring money to our bank account, or by sending a cheque. Under no circumstances should cash be exchanged at the door. Our volunteers will not have any contact with you unless absolutely necessary, to minimise risk to both them and you. They will leave goods outside your door at an arranged time.

The telephone line is manned 10am-1pm every day. At other times you can leave an answerphone message or send an email.

If you wish to volunteer to help in this, or any other way, please email Daniela: info@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk

 Fresh veg box collection every Saturday afternoon

Normally Styans come to Charlbury Farmers Market every 3 months, but now we are lucky they are making up veg boxes for collection in Charlbury every Saturday afternoon  from outside the Community Centre. Bring your own bag to transfer produce from the box AND keep your social distance at all times. To reduce contacts maybe arrange to collect for friends and neighbours. Watch your emails on Saturday morning – you will be allocated a time to come and pick up your veg. Click here for fuller and regularly updated information.

You can also order some products from Bibury Trout Farm, honey from our own Halcyon Farm and various other products.

Order your goods from StyanFamilyProduce.co.uk by 10pm previous Thursday and pay online.

House-bound and need your box delivered? Call us on 01608 811878 and we’ll arrange for someone to bring it to you.

Boxes are Large or Small  and there are optional extras like beetroot, Jerusalem artichokes, honey, and Worcestershire tomatoes grown using heat from a biomass boiler.

Organised by Charlbury Green Hub in conjunction with Janet Burroughs from Charlbury Farmers Market, Nikki Rycroft from Patients Participation Group, and Tanya Stevenson from the Community Centre.
