COVID-19 Support

As the situation changes over the coming weeks and months there will no doubt be a greater need to help members of the community, especially those who are vulnerable and need to isolate themselves or people that become unwell.

This page and our facebook page will be updated regularly with details of support groups, individuals and businesses that have volunteered to help. If you have elderly or vulnerable family, friends or neighbours living nearby please make them aware so they can liaise directly with these fantastic volunteers and receive any help they may need.

Thakeham Coronavirus Support Group

There is a new group of volunteers in the village set up to support the older and more vulnerable members, and especially those who can’t get out, with help running errands to keeping regular contact through phone calls.

Phone 07517 100626 for assistance – leave a message if no answer.

Essential Stores in the Horsham District

An independent website, working in conjunction with Horsham District Council, has been created which contains details of essential stores which are open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Local traders should contact Horsham District Council if they wish to be added to the list.
