Both during the pandemic and in normal times, a number of members have difficulty getting out, or need to isolate.
This can be for a variety or reasons, whether its health or age related.
Can you pop to the shops?
Could you pop in to say Hello?
A friendly face and an open door

Visiting /Telephone Befriending / Meal delivery
Assistance is required in visiting members who have unfortunately become unwell and ensure they are not forgotten.
To help people with their household or religious needs who cannot manage on their own please get in touch.
Thanks to our many dedicated “minyan makers”, the shul successfully held Morning, Afternoon and Evening prayers each day throughout the challenging Covid period (when the shul was permitted to open).
Please consider joining our rota, just commit one service a week!
In a large community everyone assumes someone else is stepping in, the result is... no-one does!
We also need people who can lead prayers in shiva houses.
The in-person Shabbat Kiddush is making a comeback !
Post-pandemic regulations mean we need to organise Kiddushim differently.
Ensuring Covid-safety will take many more hands.
Everyone loves a great Kiddush... so join our teams !
Youth Centre - Help us Re-open
The success of our Youth Centre for the past 20 years has been through a succession of parent volunteers.

The end of lockdown means we can now re-open.
If you have young children of primary school age, get involved and help us build on that past success AGAIN !
