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 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

The Blue Ball

Dom & Pip are working hard to keep the Blue Ball going as the village hub for food supplies.

Takeaway meal service

The Blue Ball Pub Kitchen TAKEAWAY MENU has now been launched. Open 4pm to 9pm Weds to Sat, and 12noon to 4pm on Sunday, collect from the door, or local delivery available. Menu below.

Veg / food boxes

Provisions boxes are also available to order - collect from the pub, or delivery can be arranged. Contents may vary depending on what supplies are available, but a standard box includes milk, bread, eggs and a good selection of fresh fruit and vegetables. £20 a box. Extras may be requested, and meat packs are also available.

Details below.


You can now buy a 'Pay-it-Forward' voucher redeemable either against takeaways or in the pub once everything is back to normal. You can pay online so no need to hand over cash or card when collecting meals.

You can buy vouchers securely online on the Blue Ball website.

For up-to-date information on all of these, head over to the Blue Ball's Facebook page.
