Locals supporting each other
Minchinhampton Community Group is a group of local volunteers who look for ways to support their community in any way they can.
Volunteers are drawn from right across the community, and include representatives from school, the two Minchinhampton nurseries and both churches.
The group has strong links with local charities and social enterprises such as The Long Table and Kid’s Stuff.
During lockdown, volunteers looked to connect people and provide and distribute supplies of food and medical supplies where they were most needed.
More recently they have, with the support of the Long Table, created a freezer full of ‘pay as you feel’ ready meals, available in the Hub.
Plans going forward include a ‘Community Coffee Morning’ and toddler group.
