Support during the Covid-19 pandemic

Published: 02 October 2020

We are continuing to share information about local support and advice that is available on our website and social media channels. We are also continuing to keep in touch with community organisations, faith groups and statutory authorities to share information about support which is available locally. Find out more about the Town Council's Response to Covid-19.

Water Eaton Community Larder, which is based at Water Eaton Church Road on Drayton Road, is open every Tuesday between 2pm-3.30pm. Anyone can become a member and from £3.50 a week, you can purchase 10 non-perishable items (pasta, tins etc) per week as well as free fruit and vegetables. Find out more, including how to become a member on SOFEA's website.

The IT Suite is open at Spotlight on Monday and Wednesday afternoons (please contact us to book a slot to use the IT Suite). The Spotlight Community Centre also continues to be used as a MK Food Bank Collection Point. Find out more on MK Food Bank's website.

Newton Leys Pavilion is currently being used by Buttons Pre-School and a small number of regular bookers who fit into the exemptions from the rule of 6 and comply with our risk assessments. We are not taking future bookings for parties or social events at the moment and we are regularly reviewing government guidance. We look forward to welcoming back our regular users and new hirers when it is safe to do so.
