Braunston Good Neigbours

With many of us isolated at home over the next few weeks, over forty village volunteers are now available in Braunston and Brooke, and are helping with whatever is needed.

Get in touch if you need shopping or prescriptions delivered, letters posted, dogs walked or are just in need of a friendly chat.

You can call or text our dedicated helpline number 07422 693608, or email braunstongoodneighbours@gmail.com and one of our village volunteer team will be able to help you.

The April newsletter has full details of what is currently happening in the village.

It's also important that we keep an eye out for our neighbours and help where we can, but remember to observe government guidelines and stay safe

If you wish to join our volunteer team please get in touch on the phone or email address above
