What We Do

The Croft Good Neighbour scheme provides short term assistance for the residents of Croft through the help of local volunteers, all of whom have been checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The scheme also endeavours to encourage self-help, friendship and neighbourliness within the local community. The scheme is for everyone regardless of age, including those who are self-isolating due to Covid so if you are in need of help, please get in touch.

News

Visit our News page for updates on our activity. Thank you to all who have helped and also thank you to those who have donated so very generously in any way, over the last few years in addition to all the other things you do quietly for your neighbours.

If you would like to get more involved, volunteers are welcome.


Kath Muir

We are very sorry to announce the sudden death of Kath Muir, the much loved and respected Chair of Croft Good Neighbours. As Chair of CGN she was instrumental in organising support for those families in our village who were financially impacted by the Covid19 pandemic. She helped us to obtain grants, totalling nearly £8,300.00, so that CGN could implement various initiatives that supported residents, including our older residents, during the last few years. CGN was blessed by Kath’s professionalism and her cheery good nature. She worked tirelessly to lead and promote CGN, and she was truly a good neighbour to our village.  We are very proud of all that she achieved and she will be deeply missed.

Her family are naturally devastated and coming to terms with their loss. Let us please respect their privacy.

How we can help

The above list is not exhaustive and if you have something else with which you would like help, please call us.


How the Scheme Works

  1. Ring the telephone co-ordinator to discuss your needs
    07590 246386 Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
  2. If no-one is available you can leave a message and we'll get back to you
  3. Once we've talked to you we'll then locate a suitable volunteer.
  4. The co-ordinator will call you back to confirm arrangements and the name of your assigned volunteer

Transport within the village/parish boundary is free. There is a charge for transport outside the Parish boundaries (50p a mile) to cover a volunteer's costs. The zones within which we can offer transport (max. 10 miles) are shown on the Zone Map
