Good Neighbouring Scheme

Have you got a bit of time to be a MAYFACS "good neighbour"?

There are many 'good neighbours' in our community, all helping someone, who maybe lives next door or across the road, popping in to check their neighbour is OK, but there are still many people, who for one reason or another, have few visitors or can't get out, so they can go days without seeing someone.

What is the aim of the scheme?

The main aim of the scheme is to keep the social interaction going between all generations in the village, or those who might find it difficult to get to social events, and not forgetting those who find it hard to face those events.

What's involved?

Our "Good Neighbouring" initiative involves providing a little visit to someone, in a way that can fit in with your lifestyle too. Some suggestions are:

  • popping in for a cuppa & chat for an hour a week or fortnight

  • accompanying a person to an activity

  • offering to get someone some shopping and help unpack it whilst having a chat.

  • taking someone shopping

  • accompanying someone for a walk

How can I get involved?

If you think that you would like to be part of this rewarding scheme then please contact Shirley on 07908 516875 or email manager@mayfacs.org.uk

There will be a small amount of paperwork to complete, but it's not too onerous.
