We are living through extraordinary times, and it is times like this that bring out the best in people and our communities as we all pull together and support each other.  As a Ward Member I want to express my sincere thanks to all the amazing volunteers who are helping those who are vulnerable, most in need and isolated as part of the Covid-19 Community Help Scheme.  My particular thanks go to Nicky Ager, Helen Singleton and Sarah Hutchison who are spearheading and organising efforts, and to the sector co-ordinates who are acting as a single point of contact for those who need help.   Although Chieveley is proving to be very self-sufficient, West Berkshire Council is launching a Community Support Hub, which will also offer additional support if needed.  Please continue to adhere to government guidance and keep safe.
