COLDEN Common Community Pantry needs more volunteers. 
Volunteers are required to help with monitoring and re-stocking the pantry.
The need for help for people in Colden Common has been demonstrated by the number of hampers provided by Holy Trinity Church at Christmas.
The pantry will be outside the Community Centre and will be available 24 hours a day for people to either donate or take items from, if they need. 
They hope to find 31 people to monitor and restock the pantry – one for each day of the month.

COLDEN Common's Neighbourhood Watch is looking for a new lead coordinator.
The Neighbourhood Watch scheme was resurrected by volunteers in Colden Common in 2017 after a spate of burglaries, and since then the village has increased its security, vigilance and sense of support and neighbourliness.
Now, after six years of being the lead coordinator, Chrissy Bibby, who worked hard to re-establish the scheme in the village, is stepping down from the role.
For more details about the role, contact clerk@coldencommon-pc.gov.uk.
