CHEER is a charity which provides information and advice either on home visits or over the telephone to enable older people to continue living as independently as possible. This includes signposting to locally available services and assisting in the completion of lengthy benefit claim forms, particularly those for Attendance Allowance. They also run a Befriending Scheme matching volunteers with older people who are otherwise isolated and lonely. The volunteers commit to visiting once a week for a chat and some companionship. They also run events to bring together older people at tea parties, pie and pint lunches or afternoon teas.

To refer to, or volunteer for, CHEER contact the manager on 01372 879321 or or to find out more visit .

Lynwood Allotment Association

This is a self managed allotment on Lynwood Road. The soil is generally good and most of the 99 plots are free-draining. The underlying subsoil is London clay. There is off-road parking, mains water piped to taps spaced across the site, supplies of manure and leaf mould with leaves from local parks. A small selection of powered equipment is available. Depending on the size and condition of the plot and the crops grown an orderly plot usually needs at least 3 hours attention per week during the growing season, March to October, and less in winter. The best cultivated need a lot more.

The Membership Secretary, Gill Vickers, 020 8398 4870, will be able to tell you whether any plots are available and, if not, the length of the waiting list.
