Elmdon Community Group

Elmdon Church Wall - Appeal target reached


Without a doubt the next few months are going to be extremely challenging for the whole country and in particular for small remote communities like Elmdon where we have many elderly residents.

What can the ECG do to help?

Originally the Group was formed to provide a voice for villagers when considering matters that could affect the fabric and shape of a future Elmdon. However, an additional benefit was that we created a database so that members could be quickly informed, by email, of any communal activities, events, news or general information of relevance to the village as a whole.

The main thing we feel that the ECG can offer in the current situation is the rapid and reliable communication of requests for help or assistance. Using our central database we can quickly circulate emails to all members, so if anyone wants to broadcast a message, this can be done simply by emailing a request to  elmdoncg@gmail.com 

So for example, if anyone needs help with the supply of foodstuffs and household items, help with collecting prescriptions or any other form of assistance, by contacting the ECG we can broadcast your request to the rest of the group to see if anyone is in a position to help.

At present, not everyone in the village is a member of the ECG so we would like to extend an offer of membership to any villager who would like to join. There is normally a nominal one-off joining fee of £1 but in the current climate we are waiving this.

So, if you would like to join please email your details (name, address, telephone number) to elmdoncg@gmail.com 

If you are not sure and would like further information please contact Bob Woods (838014) or Phil Kay (838757)

Unfortunately, some villagers do not have access to email so could members please check with their neighbours and if necessary use your email facility to help them if needed.
