Bagshot Care is handling telephone requests. You can telephone any weekday between 10 am and Noon on 07973 560216.  You can leave a voicemail message if you call at any other time, and it will be picked up at 10 am on the next weekday.

Windlesham Parish Hub – Questionnaire

Windlesham Parish Council is now progressing plans to construct a community hub in Lightwater, to service the whole parish. This has been one of the Council’s approved projects since 2013 and circumstances are now favourable for taking this forward.

The proposed location for this hub is on the Lightwater recreation ground behind All Saints Church.  It will replace the old pavilion and storage buildings which are now derelict and require demolition, include the refurbishment of the children’s play area, which is in need of attention, and also enhance the security to prevent vandalism and unauthorised access to the recreation field.

Before proceeding with the proposed hub, WPC would like to hear your views and would appreciate you completing following questionnaire: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LVCN6BS

Bagshot Society AGM

Our AGM was held on-line on Wed 16 Sept.

Coronavirus Emergency – Bagshot Care

During the period of lockdown, as the UK and wider world struggled to control the spread of the highly infectious Coronavirus, voluntary community agencies and local churches, with the support of Surrey Heath Borough Council, set up Surrey Heath Prepared (SHP), to offer assistance and support to residents who were self-isolating.  Many local residents stepped forward to volunteer in this endeavour.

Now that the infection rate has fallen and the period of enforced lockdown is coming to an end, support to residents within Surrey Heath is changing. The borough wide effort managed by SHP finished on 30th June 2020.  In Bagshot, we want to continue to support our community while the need still exists.  From 1st July, Bagshot Care working in partnership with local churches and a team of community volunteers, will manage any new or on-going requests for help by residents shielding or in quarantine who do not have neighbours, friends or family who can provide them with support and assistance.

If you live in Bagshot and need help because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, please call Bagshot Care any weekday between 10 am and noon on 07973 560216.   You may leave a voicemail message if you call at any other time, and it will be picked up at 10 am on the next weekday.

Scrubs for Frimley Park Hospital

Frimley Park Hospital needs a batch of scrubs in the specific sizes. We are working with other groups to co-ordinate making these and have been able to source the right material that will be able to go through the hospital’s high temperature laundry. We are raising money to pay for the fabric, threads and other items to make this batch of scrubs. If you would like to support this project, you can donate here: https://pay.churchdesk.com/1S0Vrb0wh.

We are also looking for some more dressmakers to help with the effort. You’ll need to be a confident dressmaker with an overlocking machine. If you are able to help please email info@bagshotvillage.com with the subject line “Scrubs”.

Help Frimley Park Hospital staff dealing with Covid-19

We have been asked to let everybody know how people can best help our local hospital at this time. Please find below some items they would very much appreciate:

  • Soap, shampoo, moisturizer and hand cream for staff on the COVID-19 who must shower and change into PPE before starting work and repeat the process before leaving for home. Scrubs must be bagged and taken home for washing – at 60°.
  • Bags to hold scrubs, it must have a drawstring to contain the scrubs whilst being washed. It should be the approximate size of a pillow case and made of material which will stand a hot wash.
  • Tea-time treats – biscuits, small cakes, etc. to keep the spirits and blood sugar levels up.

If you can help with any of these please see https://saintannebagshot.org.uk/blog/54048 for coordination details.
