Good Neighbours Week 2019 Thank You

Thank you to everyone who supported Springline Good Neighbours Week, and to all the volunteers who organised and were part of running events that made the week a great success.

Good Neighbours Week is just the start of our work to do all we can to reduce isolation and loneliness in the Springline Villages, from Fillingham in the north to Burton Waters in the south.

If you feel isolated or lonely please call us or use the contact form.

If you would like to help us, by volunteering to visit someone to provide social contact, or to help with other volunteering opportunities please contact us.

Finally thank you to everyone who in took a cake to a neighbour who is living alone.

Look out for our Springline Good Neighbours Events

in Good Neighbours Week 2020

Here are just a few examples of how SGNS can help:

  • giving lifts to the doctor, hospital or dentist
  • fetching prescriptions and library books
  • shopping and running errands
  • providing company for those living alone
  • assisting with social outings for the housebound
  • sitting with someone who is ill to provide a break for a full-time carer
  • walking the dog for someone who is ill
  • helping with small things around the house (watering plants, etc.)

We also provide extra hands at community events and give support to community groups.


What we are not?

We are not . . .

  • a replacement for paid labour (as we only help out, like good neighbours do!)
  • an emergency service (although in a crisis, we will try to help if we can)
  • a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme (which looks out for criminal activity)
  • a provider of 'hands-on' care
