Collingbournes Chute and Everleigh Link Scheme is back serving the community. The Link Scheme was unable to operate during the height of the coronavirus, because many of our drivers are over seventy, and are in the 'vulnerable' category, which meant that they had to stay at home. However, since the beginning of June we are back in action, and are abe to transport people to the doctor, the hospital, shopping, or most other places. Also, a break in operations such as we have just had means several people have dropped out from the occasional driving role, so we do need more volunteers. If you feel you can help the less mobile members of our community it would greatly help our Link Scheme to continue its help for people in our parishes to get to their appointments In the first instance please contact Gerry Hooper who is the scheme chairman at gshooper@btinternet.com
The Book Exchange is open.  The Collingbourne Ducis book exchange, provided by the Parish Council, is now up and running in the smart, refurbished red telephone box opposite the Tipple Inn.  This is a community resource and we hope that everyone finds something to their taste.  We aim  to have a range of books for various ages and interests. Please feel free to borrow and/or donate books. It is used at your own risk and we ask that you use the hand sanitiser provided, please. If you are donating books and there is no room on the shelves, please leave them in the front porch of Ducis House in the High Street rather than leaving them on the floor or outside the exchange.
