Nevill Residents Good Neighbour Scheme. A group of local residents are setting up a good neighbour scheme, based on similar schemes elsewhere, including Rodmell and Ringmer. Volunteers will offer day-to-day support for residents who may need help on an occasional or regular basis; for example practical tasks, such as driving or shopping, or befriending, such as sharing a cup of tea. Volunteers will not offer specialist care, or carry out skilled tasks that are appropriate for qualified tradespeople. We carried out a survey on the estate to assess likely demand for a list of activities, and to recruit volunteers. We had a tremendous response, and have a great team of volunteers ready to carry out tasks. Lifts to the doctors and shops seem to be the most popular needs, but all boxes were ticked, so there is clearly a demand for us. We are currently carrying out official safeguarding checks on new volunteers and other essential setting up tasks. When we are ready to start in earnest we will announce it in this column, together with details of how to contact us for help.
