Caring for the community of Sarratt
SARRATT CARE was launched in 1991 to give a helping hand to the people of Sarratt of all ages, well or infirm.
It has grown from small beginnings to currently having over 110 regular clients being helped in the following ways:
Our Coffee Corner coffee mornings are held from 10.30 a.m. in the Village Hall on Wednesday mornings every other week throughout the year.
This is a popular meeting place for a chat amongst friends, as well as the opportunity to meet others living in the parish.
In addition to offering teas and coffees, and perhaps a slice of home-made cake, we offer the services of a professional chiropodist, masseuse and hair stylist for both men and women.
All ages are assured of a very warm welcome.
Dates and contact details for therapist appointments appear monthly in the village magazine, Spotlight, and on a notice displayed in the shop window.
Covid-19 pandemic note – our Coffee Mornings are currently suspended, but treatments (only) have restarted.
Meals on Wheels
For those in the parish needing it, we deliver two course lunches to their homes from Monday to Friday.
Contact: Clare Bennet on 01923 260594 (office hours only please).
Covid-19 pandemic note – Meals-on-Wheels are operating normally.
SARRATT COMMUNITY LUNCH
The Club provides a three course lunch in the Village Hall at 12.30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month, dates confirmed in the village magazine, Spotlight. It is open to all ages, to anyone who lives in the parish.
We have between 50/60 people attending each month, who enjoy not only the lunch but also a very social gathering.
There is always room for more to attend, and a warm welcome is guaranteed.
Contact: Carol Chorley on 01923 265096.
Covid-19 pandemic note – Our Community Lunches are currently suspended but hopefully to be re-started at the end of the year.
For those in the parish who have transport difficulties, we have a team of volunteer drivers who are available for hospital, doctor and similar appointments.
To arrange for transport: phone 01923 270577 between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon, Monday to Friday.
However, we like at least two days notice, or longer if possible.
Covid-19 pandemic note – a limited number of drivers are now available.
THE ‘HIDDEN’ SIDE
The ‘Hidden’ side of SARRATT CARE is the day-to-day help provided by our volunteers to anyone who has a genuine need.
They don’t need to be old or infirm, but to have a genuine problem which cannot be overcome without help.
Generally no problem is too trivial, and we always try to find a volunteer to help.
Contact: Carol Chorley on 01923 265096, or any Committee member (see below).
Whilst we have a band of over 80 volunteers for all of the activities listed above, we are always looking for others – particularly for duty contacts and drivers.
If you able to spare some time to help us please contact either Carol Chorley (Chairman) on 01923 291067 or the relating contact as above.
