Spreading Christmas cheer
The Community Assistance Group have been an important part of many residents lives this year, providing assistance with shopping, prescriptions and companionship during the first lockdown and well into the summer.
The group, which consists of some Parish Councillors and the Clerk to the Council as well as other volunteers from local groups such as Wombourne and District Community Association, Wombourne Carnival and Wombourne Best Kept Village, still meet regularly via Zoom, and you will have seen the recent newsletter they produced and distributed across the village.
Aware of how isolated some elderly residents are, they set about sourcing plants from a local business, and handmade cards from residents and local children for distribution before Christmas.
This week, the plants arrived, and have been distributed over the last few days.
The feedback has been overwhelming and the group are pleased to have spread some Christmas cheer this festive time.
With the vaccine being rolled out now, it’s likely the group will not be needed very much going forward, but their time and efforts will be remembered by many for a long time to come.
