Parish council chair Cllr Katherine Gardner said: “We will be working with the churches, community groups and police to identify and offer support to all those residents who need the services of a Good Neighbour whether its delivering shopping, collecting a prescription, posting a letter or whatever will help make life a bit easier for them.”
