Can’t risk going out?

Need help with food shopping, prescriptions, posting mail, etc?

Any other urgent essentials?


There are many villagers who can collect items for you, or take you to essential appointments. Others can help solve household problems, or just phone for a friendly chat.

A register of these offers is held by:
