About Us

The Eynsham Good Neighbour Network is run entirely by volunteers and exists to support anyone in need in the village.

Prior to COVID-19 volunteers were helping people with a variety of tasks including local shopping, minor household repairs, reading aloud or even catching up over a cup of tea.

During this period of ‘social distancing’ we are not able to facilitate any face to face visits; however we continue to be able to help those in need with local shopping and collecting prescriptions, whilst following government guidelines. We can also keep in touch by telephone if you are feeling isolated.

Call the Network on 07443 564 516 to leave a message at any time, or you can speak to one of the coordinators between 09:00 and 18:00 from Monday to Saturday.

The Network is now working in partnership with the Eynsham Heroes Community Network, who have also set up a fundraising page.

The EGNN would like to say a huge Thank You for the incredibly positive and selfless response from our volunteers and drivers and from the wider Eynsham community during this crisis.
