Dear Hampton Bishop Villagers

We have created this page so we can access information, advice and guidance to help us get through this challenging time together. Hampton Bishop is a beautiful and special village. We are a resourceful, pro-active, caring community that works together, particularly in times of need. If you would like to get in touch, send us any tips on how you are coping or you just want someone to talk to please email us at [email protected]

Social isolation doesn't mean we can't be here for each other

Check out the noticeboard regularly - we'll be posting information on local food suppliers who can deliver fresh food and essentials to the village. We will post these as PDFs so you can print them off and stick on your fridge. Plus, garden tips, grow your own veg, and activities we can do safely from our homes.


Only go outside for essential food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home). If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times

Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms

We have band of friendly volunteers in the village who are on hand to offer support to their neighbours. Our village has been divided up into 10 zones with one or more volunteer per zone. Every household in the village should know who their volunteers are in their particular zone - you would have recieved a note through your door or an email, with their contact details. If not, do email us at resilience.hamptonbishop.gmail.com and we will connect you!

How our volunteers can help:

  • Arrange for shopping for and delivery of essential items. We recommend that we do not purchase high value and/or non-essential items
  • Arrange to pick up and deliver certain types of prescriptions
  • Arrange to post letters and/or other correspondence

Shopping requests:

Please minimise the number of trips requested to protect our volunteers and yourselves. Our volunteers will do their best to minimise infection by following national guidance - however, we would recommend that each household:

  • Wash hands before picking up the delivery from the doorstep
  • Unpack the delivery
  • Wipe down packaging with disinfectant wipe if available before storing
  • Don’t touch face with hands during this process
  • Once unpacking complete wash hands again
  • Other recommendations for avoiding infection can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19
  • Payment will be organised prior to the shopping trip between the volunteer and household

What our volunteers cannot do:

· Perform home visits and/or enter homes for any reason

· Provide medical care and/or advice

· Provide childcare

Please do connect with your zone volunteer - even just to say hello!
