Covid 19 support for local community

Community support

It is already clear that many members of our community are willing to support each other in whatever ways turn out to be practicable, and for as long as the virus outbreak lasts. We have already had a great response to our appeal for volunteers to collect and deliver food and medical supplies to those who are ill or in isolation.

If you haven't yet signed on as a volunteer or as someone expecting to need help, please do so here.

If you feel you need help (eg getting food or medical items delivered if you are self-isolated) please use the same form or call Darren (Nobby) Stiles on 01730 813666 or Neil Ryder on 01730 207447.

This page is intended to detail the help we hope to be able to provide, and we will try to update it as necessary - or as people come forward with new ideas.


There is no point us duplicating the mounds of advice and guidance that is available from more expert sources, so here are a few sites we recommend:

Food and other supplies


Temporary food bank: Please note that the Trotton church is acting as a temporary food bank. Please leave anything you can afford for those who need it.

Pop up shop via Elsted Inn

Thais & Charlie are accepting orders for basic essentials for residents at cost price, as a goodwill gesture to the community. They will be available to take orders by phone (01730 813662) from Noon - 4pm (weekdays only) but would prefer orders to be placed via the form below. Items should be available for collection or (for those in isolation) delivery the following afternoon.
