So if you are not able to get out to the shops and need help, any groceries or any pharmacy medicines, please get in touch and we will try and find someone to help you.
Please do not be afraid to ask.
We have a list of names that can help.
We are all in this together and we shall all get through it together.

A huge thank you to everyone who made our remembrance events so – well…..memorable.
For those unable to visit the hall during the period, and indeed for those who did – we will be publishing a number photos and articles that capture the essence of the weekend.
These will not only include the fun and frolics, but also the factual documentation and stories provided by many of our community who have been in someway involved in our Armed Services – either personally or via family association.
Links to the photographs and special remembrance features will appear below in the coming weeks.
The Asthall Leigh Memorial Hall stands as a memorial to the men and women who fell in the 1914-18 and 1939-45 Wars, and to those that returned.
Records show that the Hall dates back to 23rd February 1922 when the land was purchased for the sum of £40.00 for the purpose of providing a site for the erection of a building as a war memorial for the Parish of Asthall.
The first Trustees were, William Mustey of Fordwells; Robert Mills, Joseph Albert Fenemore and John Williams all of Asthall Leigh.
The management of the Hall and Garden is still in the hands of the Memorial Hall Trustees and is now a registered charity, No. 263789. There are seven trustees and one Parish Council trustee.
The trustees are committed to provide the residents of the Asthall Parish with recreational and social facilities. As volunteers, they give their time and efforts to maintain the Hall’s objectives as set out in the original Deed of 1919 and are always seeking to improve and expand the facilities for the benefit all the residents and users.
