Who are these deliveries for?
We are now in a position to order combined bread and cake deliveries from Wigmores Bakery (Wiggies). This will be delivered to the Village Hall on Saturdays. There is no minimum order amount, but there will be a small charge to cover Village Hall costs of setting up and running this service (£8 a week). This will be divided pro rata over the orders received in a week, so should be a small amount.
You must pay the Village Hall for your delivery, as Wiggies require just one payment which we will arrange. Continue reading
Who are these deliveries for?
Local food delivery businesses are inundated with requests, and stretched to their limits. To help, we are arranging a combined delivery system for veggie boxes and a few staples with Evans of Monmouth. This will ease the pressure on Evans and provide people who are self-isolating with a regular delivery.
Evans have informed us that they can no longer do individual deliveries in the village as they are prioritising helping isolated and vulnerable people across the area.
Food boxes will be dropped off at the Village Hall on Mondays and we will ask our volunteers to deliver the boxes to your door.
Orders must be placed with us
Order before midday on Wednesday for delivery the following Monday. Continue reading
HELP ON THE NARTH PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION INFORMATION
This is new information about our prescription collection service. We have agreed a twice weekly collection service with Trellech Surgery on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Please try to order your repeat prescriptions at least one week before you need them
If you need someone to collect a prescription, please contact Help on The Narth before you contact the surgery to order the prescription. We will give you the name of the volunteer who will collect your prescription and the day on which they will collect it. You can then order in your usual way.
If you order your prescriptions online, there is a free text box where you can add the name of the volunteer who will collect the prescriptions.
If you order by telephone, please add the name of the volunteer to the end of the message after you’ve given your name, date of birth and item required.
If you are a patient at one of the Monmouth surgeries, we have a dedicated volunteer who will pick up prescriptions from these surgeries. Please contact us and we will pass the message to the volunteer and let you know what arrangements we have been able to put in place.
URGENT PRESCRIPTIONS AT ANY SURGERY
If you need an urgent prescription or any other errand involving any of the surgeries, please get in touch. We can arrange individual collections for anything that can’t wait until our next scheduled collection
In these difficult times, a group of us from the Village Hall committee are working on a network to provide support for people who are experiencing difficulties due to Covid 19.
