The Wendover Good Neighbour Scheme

The scheme was established on Friday 27 March with around 50 Street Wardens volunteering their services to support the vulnerable around Wendover. Since then it has gone from strength to strength with a Street Warden allocated to most streets in Wendover supporting the residents with shopping, prescription collections or just a friendly ear. We are now all hopeful restrictions will be gradually lifted for a return to something resembling normality. Looking to the future, the Parish Council will endeavour to maintain the scheme so that if another incident should occur, we have a cadre of individuals, with the appropriate council support, ready to respond in whatever we can to ease the burdens on the community.

Meanwhile, please take time to read the letter of appreciation and the thoughts of some of our Wardens reflecting on their experiences during the COVID-19 crisis in articles following this.
