 Newbury Weekly News Christmas Parcels for the over 80s

It seems very early to be thinking about Christmas! CHAIN will again be co-ordinating (on behalf of Newbury Weekly News) the delivery of the parcels in Hungerford.

We are completely reliant on people letting us know about members of the community who might be entitled to a parcel – there is no other way that we can obtain this information!

We need to know about the following:
If you live in Hungerford or Hungerford Newtown and have celebrated your 80th birthday this year, or will do so before the end of the year
If you know of anyone who is now 80 years old or will be by the end of the year
If you are over 80 and have never received a parcel in the past but would like to do so
If you know of anyone over 80 but, for whatever reason is no longer with us.

Please contact the co-ordinators on the telephone numbers listed below.

Parcels are normally delivered in early December. Look for full details of this in the next edition of CHAIN Mail. We really need to keep our list up to date so that nobody misses out. Ideally we need to know as soon as possible but certainly no later than 1st December 2018.

Many thanks, Ted and Daphne Angell
