Dear All, these are very difficult times but you are not alone.
We have been working hard over the last few days to put in place a support network for ALL Compton Martin parishioners. We now have an extensive list of volunteers ready and willing to support any parishioners who need to self-isolate and also to look out for the most vulnerable members of our community.
Volunteers will be allocated to different areas of the Parish and a leaflet drop will take place in the next few days to provide contact details for anyone needing support. It would be helpful if anyone who is ‘at risk’ (over 70, pre-existing medical condition, pregnant) or who is currently self-isolating would let their volunteer know. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence and only used to help support people during the Coronavirus pandemic.
For those self-isolating:-
- We are currently trying to put arrangements in place with Harptree Surgery to be able to pick up and deliver prescriptions.
- We will pick up shopping and any urgent supplies.
- We will pick up and post mail.
- We are happy to just have a chat on the phone with anyone who is living alone.
We are not able to offer medical advice. Current NHS Guidelines should be followed.
The Ring O’Bells, Compton Martin is offering a free delivery service for meals ordered from them. Call on 01761 221284.
Spar (Bowdens) in West Harptree is offering a home delivery service for newspapers and groceries which we will be supporting. Call on 01761 221338 or e-mail [email protected]
The New Manor Farm Shop is offering home deliveries to all. Call on 01761 220067
The situation is very dynamic and we will provide updates as and when we are able.
Thank you on behalf of the Parish to all those that have already helped and to those that have volunteered.

Friends and locals, Miles & Luca, Matt & Fiona recently took over the pub from Butcombe this year and have restored it to all it's original glory. With a revamped menu and guest ales, they hope to make the pub the heart of the village once more.
