The Village News is being produced as a paper edition again.

We are having it printed by a printer in Devon who specialises in village magazine printing.

Because many people could not access the online editions last year, the committee has decided that there will be no charge for any of the 2021 magazines.

Appointments

If you receive an appointment, please do everything you can to attend as we are vaccinating thousands of people every week. Vaccine supplies are limited, the supply of the frozen vaccine, Pfizer is more certain but we can only offer that in our larger vaccination centres at the moment.

If your circumstances mean that you can get to a vaccination centre, we ask you to do everything you can to make it as we will not be able to offer an alternative except for those people who are housebound. By offering the vaccine through GP practices and across our Health Board area we are doing our utmost to reduce travel time and we appreciate everyone attending their appointment.
