More Plants Needed - if you have plants to donate for the sale, could you get them up to the Village Hall Garden, labelled if possible please by Friday, 22nd May. 

Coronavirus, Covid-19 - when visiting the Village Hall and Garden remember -Stay Alert and continue to Observe Social Distancing and Government Guidelines. Keep Yourself and Others Safe. If there are a lot of people already looking please wait to enter, until you are able to maintain the 2 metre distance. 

With our perennial Worth Fête being postponed and the additional challenges faced by our local charities, as you probably know, during April, we sold the plants that had been prepared for the Fête Plant Stall from the Village Hall garden. On the 26th we held a bargain sale, coinciding with the 2.6 London Marathon Charity Challenge, selling plants at £2.60 each. People passing the Village Hall observed social distancing and bought plants during their daily exercise walk, and others created their own unique challenges at home to generate funds.

All proceeds have gone to the MyTime Charity for young carers, who have been planning to upgrade their Outdoor Centre at Worth – the old WWII Radar Development HQ – so that they can offer even better facilities for the Young Carers they support and, during Covid-19, they have created ‘MyTime at Home’ to stay in touch with, involve and entertain young carers who are at present unable to take advantage of MyTime’s traditional holiday breaks.

Thanks to the generosity of our villagers, the total donated so far

to MyTime is an amazing £630.

MyTime and the Fête Plant Stall Team thank all in Worth who contributed towards this splendid total.

 

NOW WE HAVE A NEW CHALLENGE

Last year our Fete donated £2,000 to MyTime and though Covid-19 is severely limiting our activities it is also limiting MyTime's fund raising so our goal is to get as close as we can to last year’s total.

At the end of this month, to coincide with the Fête weekend which is the late May Bank Holiday - the 22nd to the 26th May - we are setting a new challenge.

Once again it will be spearheaded by the Plant Stall Team who are organising another plant sale but we also have a limited amount of some very nice Bric-a-Brac for sale, AND, AGAIN, we invite people to create their own unique activity to help us generate funds for the MyTime Charity.

To see more about what’s happening at MyTime, the great work they are doing and some of the creative ways they are generating funds, click this link

and do watch Krista's video part way down the 2.6 Challenge page.

 

Whatever the outcome of our efforts we hope you enjoy the plants you have bought or are yet to buy, and being involved in our 2.6 Challenge

 

DONATIONS OF MORE PLANTS NEEDED

To help the success of the sale it would help tremendously to have more plants. If you have any to contribute could you get them up to the back of the Village Hall by Thursday 21st May please. That will allow time for the team, working in isolation of course, to arrange them ready for the weekend's ‘drop-ins’.


Thank you all for everything you have done

The Worth Fête Plant Stall team

 

Important: If visiting the Village Hall Garden to buy plants please, Stay Alert and continue to Observe Social Distancing and the Government Guidelines regarding the Coronavirus, Covid-19 - keep Yourself and Others Safe.

DUBBER AREA
COMMUNITY RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRU
S
 

Unfortunately the Coronavirus situation is becoming more serious and some people will wish to self-isolate, either because they have the virus or in order to keep themselves safe. Our local Parish Councils and Church community are joining together to offer support during this difficult time.

We have set up special phone numbers and
e-mail addresses so that people in the Dubber area needing help or support while isolated will have a point of contact. There will be two support groups, one under the Langton and one under the Worth umbrella: residents of Harmans Cross should contact the Worth Group while Kingston residents may contact either group.

The contact details below can be used either by those wishing to seek support or those wishing to offer their services as volunteers. We will aim to offer the following services:

  • Picking up shopping

  • A friendly phone call or ‘Face Time’

  • Posting mail

  • Urgent supplies, including medicine

We also need volunteers to act as ‘duty officer’ on our rota to take phone calls/e-mails. They will be supplied with a phone and access to the relevant e-mail support address.

For the Langton support group:
phone 07388 728177 or e-mail langtonmatravers20@gmail.com

For the Worth support group:

phone 07423 305060 or e-mail worthmatravers20@gmail.com
