Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

This message is from Val McPherson Area Neighbourhood Watch Representative for Aylesbury Vale.

I would like to Congratulate Area Co-ordinator Gail Steed and  Co-ordinator Carol Lister   who have both been awarded The British Empire Medal in the Queen's New Year Honours List for services to the community of Cheddington particularly during Covis 19..

In brief, they have been involved in Neighbourhood Watch for over 25 years , and 86% of residents are members.
They have ran a successfully "Community that cares project" to keep the elderly and vulnerable aware of scams.
At the start of lock down (through their email cascade system) they asked for volunteers to help support the elderly.They received 98 responses who in turn supported 160 households calling it Chedd-eroo!.
They delivered medication from several  GP surgeries, and with their band of volunteers they were able to do shopping, gardening, cashed cheques, chatting on doorsteps and homemade Christmas day meals., and also gave out  Christmas Cards from children and Grandchildren. 
They linked in with two local food banks who supported the residents without a referral and started a monthly food bank collection
The Community that Cares and three monthly Food Bank Collection is still continuing today.

What a marvellous achievement within your community of Cheddington. a very well deserved honour.
