During the current lockdown, regular bulletins from the Revd Vanessa Cole and/or the Revd Matthew Grayshon may be read by following the links on the footer of every page. If you would like these emailed to you daily or just a weekly bulletin each Monday, please send a request to secpdteam@gmail.com  We want to keep in touch and to offer support where it is needed. For the local initiative, read the message from the Parish Council here and from the Wallops Good Neighbours here.

The Wallops Village Shop and Post Office is asking for support from all those who see it as playing a vital role in our community.  Read the article in the parish magazine Save the shop and see our useful links page https://www.stpetersoverwallop.co.uk/useful-links The Wallops PCCs have expressed their support for the shop and are encouraging parishioners to respond by making regular purchases or through cash donations (Gift Aid tax declarations may be made). The shop and Post Office remain open for business during the lockdown (maximum of two customers at a time).

The Andover Foodbank:  please check their website here for up to date information.  They are closed from Good Friday for the Easter weekend, but reopen on Tuesday April 14th.  They have been looking for volunteer drivers. They  currently receive regular fresh food donations from Abel and Cole which they distribute to various local agencies and clients.  At present they collect and distribute the food on Tuesday and Friday mornings and need some additional drivers.  If you have a little spare time, are over 30 and have a current driving licence, please contact the Foodbank office on 01264 362111 or email office@andoverfoodbank.org.uk Their monthly coffee morning are currently suspended.  These get togethers have provided a great opportunity to socialise, to visit the Foodbank, meet some of the staff and to find out what goes on and how they operate.
