Helping Hands: our Community Friends Scheme for Robertsbridge and Salehurst has been running now for just over a year. In this time the volunteers have done 365 tasks, with the most popular request being for transport. The scheme links local volunteers with village residents who may need some help or just a friendly chat. Remember it is not just for the elderly. We can all find ourselves in need of some help at some point in our lives, regardless of age. Please contact 07726592739 if you need some help or if you would like to volunteer your time and skills. More volunteer drivers would be very welcome.
