A Care Committee was set up in Yarnton in 1974 ‘to give help wherever it is needed to residents’ and over the years many have benefited, in one way or another, from it.
The services currently on offer are:
Lunch Club - See separate entry
Shopping Bus - A fortnightly service to Kidlington on Tuesday mornings in a minibus hired from Glebe House and driven by volunteers. Any offers to drive either regularly or just occasionally would also be gratefully received. Shopping Transport Organiser Fred Jones: Tel: 01865 373871
Prescription collection from Yarnton surgery - If you are unable to collect your prescription we will try and arrange collection for you. Prescription Collection Sheila Westall Tel: 01865 373445
Hospital transport - In an emergency and if no other transport is available, we will try and arrange for a volunteer driver. The committee is very anxious to recruit more volunteer drivers. To volunteer help or to use these services contact Hospital Transport Organiser Mrs Judy Mitchell Tel: 01865 374104
The committee tries to keep up-to-date with services offered by the County and District Councils and organisations such as Age Concern. so if you are uncertain where to get the help you need, contact the Care Committee.
