Mobile Larder in Pennington

Mobile Larder in Pennington

Every Thursday from 21st January 2021, 1.00pm - 2.30pm, located in the car park of St Mark's Community Hall SO41 8EJ.

 

Fareshare's Larder

The Larder is a community larder run by volunteers for the benefit of the local community. We are a membership scheme aimed at helping people make their money go further by reducing food shopping bills.

 

Cost of membership varies depending on the size of your household:

Single person - £2.50 per week - for this you are entitled to 10 products per week, plus some fruit and vegetables.

2-person plus household - £3.50 per week - for this you are entitled to 15 products per week, plus some fruit and vegetables.

4-person plus household - £5.00 per week - for this you are entitled to 25 products per week, plus some fruit and vegetables.

 

Your bag will be prepared in advance. We will strive to offer a variety of quality products. It is estimated that your bag will hold an average of £10-£15 products (dependent on household size). A bag can consist of some of these items: pasta, rice, coffee, tea bags, tinned meats, tinned fish, tinned desserts, soups along with fresh fruit and vegetables. It may also include the odd fridge product such as cheese. (For this you will need to bring with you an insulated cool bag and sign to confirm that you are monitoring your fridge/freezer temperature at home)

A membership form needs to be completed and proof of address/ID needs to be provided unless a recognised referral agency refers you to the scheme. Application forms can be requested by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Completed forms need to be returned to this email address. Alternatively, if you turn up on the day there will be volunteers there who will take you through the registration process.

Members are required to keep up membership by attending the Larder on a weekly basis and paying their membership fee. Failure to attend for three consecutive weeks will mean that your membership will be offered to someone on the waiting list. 

In line with GDPR your details will be kept by FareShare and will not be shared by any other 3rd party. This is a requirement of our compliance procedure. Further information upon request.

Beaulieu Nativity

Beaulieu Nativity

How very disappointing that we have to cancel the outdoor Nativity.

The weather forecast for Wednesday afternoon is heavy rain at 1pm, followed by consistent light rain. As you know, the meadow in front of the church is very exposed, and it would be unpleasant for all of us, animals included!

I'm really sorry - I've been looking forward to it, and the band were looking forward to joining us.

Festive touch at St Mary's Chapel

Festive Touch at St Mary's Chapel.

Sally, who lives at Buckler's Hard, has kindly added a festive touch to the exterior of St Mary's Chapel. Unfortunately, due to the small space in the chapel, we are unable to hold services there at present. Happy Christmas and every blessing to all our residents in the village, and those who work there, or moor their boats there.                    Fr John
