# How Can We Help

Little Comberton Parish Council and Coronavirus

 

If you live in Little Comberton and are need of support or assistance during the Coronavirus outbreak please contact Lynne Yapp, Parish Clerk, on 01386 552233 mobile 07971 362445 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We have set up a volunteer scheme in Little Comberton to support villagers who are self-isolating, using our Little Comberton email group of over 90 individuals. More than 25 people have stepped forward to offer their assistance out of a population of about 300, many of whom are elderly. 

Each of our 7 parish councillors has been allocated a patch of the village with 3-4 volunteers. The councillors are the main contact point for individuals who are in need of help with shopping, post, etc. and phone call support. WhatsApp groups have been set up to ensure that the volunteers are quickly made aware of any requests for help.

# How Can We Help Fliers offering support and assistance have been delivered to each home, with a list of local suppliers doing home deliveries on the reverse. This includes our local community pub, the Queen Elizabeth at Elmley Castle, offering takeaway food and drink and fresh food box collections & deliveries. This list has been updated as new initiatives have been developed, including a village family who have re-established Bredon Hill Foods vegetable box scheme.

We are working with the local doctors surgeries to have a single delivery of free and prepaid prescriptions to the village, distributed by volunteers around the village. 

Our Sports and Social Committee is looking at how it can offer phone call support to vulnerable people in the village. 

We are very happy to cooperate with any other initiatives that are being set up, using the parish council as a central coordinating point for our volunteer network.

Welcome to the website for the village of Little Comberton!

 

This charming village can be found in the county of Worcestershire, nestled at the foot of the northern slopes of Bredon Hill between Pershore and Evesham (map).

 

Little Comberton is the sibling of Great Comberton.  Both villages are small, friendly and have a wonderful charm through the variety of old timber framed thatched cottages that abound.

 

Records of Little Comberton go back as far as 1086 and many old photographs from by-gone eras show little has changed in the village over the years.
