A message to Bradford Peverell parishioners 

We are writing to you at a difficult time and hope that you are managing as best you can.


We know that some of you will be self-isolating during the Coronavirus pandemic and that you may have local friends or family who are able to support you. However, this period is affecting us all in various ways and we want to do all we can to help you manage the situation. To that end we have a team of villagers ready to provide comfort and assistance where it is needed.


We want to find out who in Bradford Peverell parish requires help, be that access to advice and services, help with shopping or transport, collecting medication or simply communication and reassurance.


So that we can understand and meet your needs you can either phone Sylvia Denning or Sandra Desborough or, if you prefer, complete and return the slip below to Liz and Bill Bade’s letterbox at Corner Cottage, which is located on the village crossroads (theirs is a green front door). We will then get back in touch with you.



Sylvia Denning: 01305 751735 (or e-mail

Jon and Sandra Desborough: 01305 266834 or Jon’s mobile: 07900 827472



We would also like to hear from you if you are able to lend support to villagers. Please contact Paul Meaden (01305 757566 or 07762 527705). It would also be helpful if you could let Paul know if you are already supporting village friends or neighbours, so that we can know that they are in good hands.


Together we can keep our community safe and minimise the inconvenience of this hopefully short-lived episode. The co-ordinating group will continue to monitor the situation in the days and weeks ahead and will keep you informed of further developments. Updates will also be posted on the Parish Council’s website (



Yours sincerely,



Paul Meaden

Bradford Peverell Parish Council
