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 so if you are in need of help, please get in touch.
Village Flower Planters
We are seeking residents to help the Croft Good Neighbours volunteers look after the two flower containers in the village, situated on the junctions of Arbor Road/Windermere and Broughton Road/Brookes Avenue.
All you would need to help with is planting up twice a year, weeding, deadheading, watering regularly and cleaning the plinth if needed. We have a small fund from the Parish Council for this project and we are hoping people will donate plants as well. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact telephone number and we will get back to you when we know numbers. Thank you
Visit our News page for further 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.
How we can help
- transport (e.g. doctor or hospital appointments);
- household assistance;
