This site is designed to inform the residents of Burton Lazars, and the surrounding community, of activities and events in the Village, with the aim of fostering a better community spirit. It provides information on Village Hall functions, as well as other independent activities. We welcome input from any source, which is felt to be of interest and benefit to the village.

St James Coronavirus Support Group
You or a neighbour may like to know that we have now created a list of willing volunteers who are ready to take a call from anyone in or around the village who may need a little help or support at this time. The idea is that if you or a neighbour needs someone to help them by picking up some food items or perhaps medicine we are there. The following people are happy to take your call. They are not in any particular order so feel free to try any number/s:
Julia Joseph-Hind 07949 519808 Janet King 01664 372372
Jenny Pengelly 01664 668095 Maggie Saunders 01664 500057
Lynne Osborne 01664 564516 Cathy Lightfoot 01664 410981
Yvonne Rowe 01664 482701 Sue Karran 07918 640349
In order to protect them and you, the person delivering your item(s) will knock or ring your doorbell and put the package down on your doorstep and wait to make sure that you pick it up.
Regarding payment for goods purchased, the receipt will be in the bag/package, but your shopper' will phone you before delivery to tell you the cost so you will be able to prepare the cash or a cheque for the right amount and place it in an envelope ready..
In addition to the above list of volunteers you can call we have another growing list of ‘shoppers’ not in the self-isolating group willing to shop and deliver your goods as best they can!
