Hello Everybody,
it is looking increasingly likely that we will all be affected in some way over the coming week. by the Coronavirus outbreak. What can we do as a community to help?
If you have to self-isolate, you will need family members, neighbours and friends to help you in many different ways. You do not need to face isolation alone.
So, if you find yourself needing help in any way please ask, there are plenty of people in the village who can give support such as doing shopping, collecting prescriptions, running errands or providing a friendly ear.
Steve at the pub has also offered to provide takeout meals or even a flask of soup if you are having problems with food supplies or preparation.

Please do not hesitate to contact any of the following people who can arrange the support you may need.
Marlin and Sarah Higgs - 01460 73915
Robin and Julie Moses - 01308 868820
Nick and Francesca Hurrell - 01308 867617

Exciting news – Drimpton now has its three new recycling bins in the Village Hall car park to take some of the items we can’t currently recycle in our roadside collections. The bins are all clearly marked so we can now recycle aluminium foil, tetrapak cartons, and crisp, nut, popcorn and pretzel packets, plus Pringles tubes. As it’ll be village volunteers taking them to Bridport for recycling, please make sure you leave only the items specified and that everything is washed and squashed, clean and dry!

Drimpton's Making A Difference team will be at the Coffee Morning with this and other ideas for local ways we can all help each other and the environment.
Your local info and ideas are crucial – please come along and get involved.
None of us has all the answers, but together we’re a genius!
