Coronavirus – Support in Bagshot


This communication is being sent to all residents of Bagshot and is supported by St Anne’s Church, Christ the King Catholic Church, Bagshot Methodist Church, Bagshot Care and Waitrose.

While this national emergency on the spread and infection of the coronavirus exists in the UK and wider world, voluntary community agencies, along with the various Churches, within the Camberley and Bagshot areas, are setting up a central number to offer assistance and support to residents who are self-isolating at this time.

We hope that, where possible, neighbours, friends and family are providing the support and assistance to anyone that has to self-isolate. However, we realise that for some of our community who do not have a local network, self-isolation means just that. It is for this reason that our local volunteer and church groups have organised to provide support for vulnerable members of our community.

For anyone who is requiring support while self-isolating such as shopping, picking up medication, essential transport or just someone to talk to then please contact 01276 66798.
The line is open between 9-5 every day 7 days a week.

Bagshot Village Response to COVID-19

We are pulling together a coordinated response for Bagshot Village to the emerging COVID-19/Corona Virus situation. Our particular focus is to support potentially vulnerable residents, especially older people.
If you already volunteer with Bagshot Care or a local church then they will be in contact soon. Otherwise, if you want to volunteer your time please contact Bagshot Care ( They will collect your information and direct volunteers to the appropriate roles and organisations.
We are developing our plans but roles are likely to include receiving requests for help, delivering essential supplies, essential transport, telephone chats, etc
If your organisation would like to help with the co-ordinated response in Bagshot, please contact Stefan Nahajski via Messenger or email (
We are, or will be, liaising with the Parish Council, local supermarkets, GP surgery and Borough Council.
We are communicating with neighbouring villages to share ideas and support.

Litter Pick success …

… thanks to the volunteers who turned out on Saturday morning (29 Feb) having faith in the weather  forecast that the heavy rain would cease by the 10am start – which it did.  We only had one shower, and we ended in near-sunshine.

Numerous bags of litter were collected and stacked up for Amey to collect.

It is just a shame that it is necessary to do this.  Why can’t the litter louts put their cans, crisp packets and sweet wrappers in the litter bins?  There are plenty of them around.

Litter Pick is still on …

The weather forecast indicates that the rain should clear by 10am, so the Litter Pick will still go ahead.  Meet at 10 in the car park behind the Coop.  There remains a risk of showers so wear boots and suitable clothing.

Village Litter Pick

This Saturday 29 Feb.  Meet in the car park behind the coop at 10am. We have all the equipment that was bought last year, but you can bring your own. Please help. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

For more information see Bagshot Society

Village Clean-up

Saturday 29 February is the date for our next Village Clean-up with the intention of doing those areas that were inaccessible last summer due to undergrowth.  Meet at 10am in the car park behind the Coop.

Further details will be published on the Bagshot Society page.

Meet your Councillors

… and get answers to the questions that concern you.

Our annual “Meet the Councillors” Q&A session was held on Wednesday 22 January. The meeting was well attended and productive.

A fuller report will be published in the near future.


Orthodox Hotchpoch

Did you know that there is an Orthodox Christian  monastery just down the road at Brookwood?

The Saint Edward Brotherhood is a small monastic community established in 1982. Their church is the resting place of the relics of Saint Edward the Martyr – murdered King of England.

The Bagshot Society welcomed Fr Alexis from the Brotherhood to talk about, and answer questions on, the Orthodox Faith, the role of icons, and the Saint Edward Brotherhood on Wed 23rd October.  His informative and amusing talk was well received by a large aufdience.
