Advice from Gloucestershire Hub

Advice from Gloucestershire Hub

Gloucestershire’s councils and partners have created a community help hub to connect local people who need help, with others who can provide the support they need.

As further measures are put in place to delay the spread of Covid-19, local people have already started to pull together to arrange help in their area for those who need it, but not everyone has existing connections.

In response, the council’s across the county have come together with the police and health partners to create the hub to connect local people who need help, with individuals, groups and businesses who can provide the support they need.

The hub includes four forms:
• ‘I can offer help’ — is for those who are able to support neighbours with tasks such as picking up prescriptions, shopping, dog walking and more
• ‘I need help’ — can be used by individuals to ask for support
• ‘My neighbour needs help’ — may be used by people to request help on behalf of a neighbour, relative or friend who cannot access the internet themselves
• ‘My business can help’ — will allow local businesses who may have skills and resources others could benefit from, to offer their help

The information collected will be shared with the relevant local council who will connect people who can help each other, or if appropriate refer individuals to an existing service.

Residents are encouraged to share details of the community help hub on social media using the hashtag tagatuortolly

The hub will be accessible from every district council website, and from the county council’s website at

THE GREAT RISSINGTON RECREATION AND SPORTS COMMUNITY FUND – GRRSCF

Great Rissington Recreation and Social Club Fund was set up as a registered charity (Charity No 1115257) in 2005 as a conduit for contributions towards the building of the new clubhouse at the Great Rissington Club.

The catchy name was chosen so that future projects in the village could also be assisted by the Charity and its aim, as defined in the Trust Deed, is to “support fundraising activities to provide and improve recreational and sports facilities in the village of Great Rissington to cater for the changing needs of the village and wider local community”.

When Richard Turner bequeathed Heaven Field to the village, GRRSCF took over ownership and management of Heaven Field on behalf of the village, kindly assisted by Brian Agg and his team of volunteers who generously give their time to look after the field and manage the hedgerows and boundaries.  Over the last 3 – 4 years donations from villagers have allowed us to replace all the boundary fencing so that now sheep are grazing the field, saving the cost of cutting the grass and also contributing (along with other donations) towards the annual running/maintenance costs of over £300.  We would very much like to find a way for villagers to benefit from the field in some way and are open to suggestions. The field is registered with the Official Custodian of the Charity Commission in order to protect it from development as it can now be sold only for charitable purposes and only with the agreement of the Charity Commission.

When the additional land for the playing field was purchased, for legal reasons it was registered in the name of GRRSCF, which now manages the contract with Vodafone and Telefonica for the mobile phone mast and donates the lease rental to the Great Rissington Club.

The Telephone Box refurbishment project is also being managed by GRRSCF (the box itself was purchased by the Parish Council) and once the project is complete it will house a second defibrillator for the village, funded by the Parish and County Council. Further information on plans for the phone box can be found at   https://greatrissington.org/friendsofthephone/

Currently we have 7 Trustees, Graham Ramsey (Chair), Sarah Hoyle (Secretary), Jane Carter (Treasurer), Anne Blessley, Richard Cleverly, Clive Billing and Chris Bowen.  We meet at least twice a year and on other occasions as and when required.

If you’re interested in becoming a Trustee, making a donation (under the Gift Aid scheme GRRSCF can claim an additional 25% from HMRC for donations from UK taxpayers) or have a suggestion for how our community could use Heaven Field please contact Sarah Hoyle (ku.oc1585481211.ooha1585481211y@1el1585481211yoh_h1585481211aras1585481211).
