Friday 27th March update

Following the unfortunate closure of the Edington Farm Shop we are now offering a newspaper delivery service for anyone in the village who normally obtains their newspaper with vouchers, unfortunately we cannot handle cash payments. We have arranged with Bratton shop to collect them from there and then deliver them around the village, if you would like to join this scheme please ring the village hotline 07933 143021.

Village hotline has now received 10 calls since it was setup.

Friday 27 March 2020

Edington Farm Shop will close at 6pm this evening until further notice as they are unable to get supplies.  Thank you for supporting them and them supporting the village.

A couple of messages today. Firstly from Lynn our postie, can you please try and leave your front gate open to avoid her having to touch it and possibly spreading any germs. She does wear gloves but wants to minimise any risk.

Secondly – use of the playfield.

We have now had 50 people volunteer to help others in the village, we are getting close to 10% of the village offering asisitance to others, thank you to all those who have volunteered and it is not too late for others to volunteer as well.

To date we have had 3 requests for assistance. Have you checked on your neighbours today?

You may have seen the rainbows around the village? The children are trying to brighten up the village with their drawings and you can also see them on the website. www.edingtonwiltshire.org.uk/rainbows

Thank you Debs for organising this.

Don’t forget the farm shop is now open from 9am to 9pm selling a selection of groceries and ready meals to be collected or delivered. (See Friday’s update below for the details)

Chase the rainbows

Villagers radiate rainbows in a window near you 🌈!

It’s contagious, bright rainbows have been popping up in the windows of Edington homes. And we’re hoping the number of these beautifully infectious rainbows will increase, as more and more people in Edington, of all ages, create their own rainbows. 🌈.
How many creative, colourful interpretations of rainbows will you see, as you drive through Edington or go on an isolated walk? Remember, as you go rainbow hunting, to follow guidelines on social distancing.
For those of you who can’t leave your homes to go rainbow spotting, please enjoy these creations, sent in by local families, to our very own website window.
It all started in the village as purely a ripple. An Edington Mum posted details of a growing ‘rainbow spotting’ movement on Facebook, to a local messaging group. And their kids, faced with no school on Monday, and the prospect of not seeing their friends for a while, immediately got busy!
There has been a sharing frenzy of pictures and positivity on the friendship group. All punctuated with what is fast becoming their symbol of support for one another – you guessed it – the rainbow emoji 🌈!
Look forward to seeing your own rainbow, in a window near us, soon! 🌈

See more pictures here as they arrive.
