Pixham Residents Association
all about the PRA
The Pixham Residents Association was formed in 2009 with the idea of enhancing our local environment and strengthening our community through encouragement of joint activities. As well as putting on successful social events, such as the Pixham Summer Fete, monthly coffee mornings and pop-up pubs, we have initiated a number of community projects, campaigned to make Old Pixham School a community centre, others are in the pipeline.
Pixham and coronavirus
In view of the current public health situation due to the COVID19 pandemic, and government warnings against non-essential social contact, the management of Old Pixham School have decided they have no option other than to close OPS as a social venue from Wednesday 18 March until further notice.
They wish all users and Pixham residents the best of health, and hope to see you back again to enjoy sociable times in the not too distant future.
We will keep you up to date with developments.
If you have any queries about OPS, or need help or support of any kind due to self-isolation or other problems please contact us via the email address below, or the contact form on this website.
We are here to help!
Dorking Shopping and Delivery Information
Those of us who are required to self isolate or avoid social contact still need to shop for food.
Anyone who is hoping to get a delivery slot from one of the major supermarkets will know that this can be a major problem, particularly if you haven't previously registered.
You may not be aware that there are now quite a few local suppliers who offer delivery of their food items.
Click here to see a list of suppliers who can offer this service.
We will try our best to keep it up to date!
Pixham ‘Good Neighbour’ Scheme
Are you able and willing to help our community right now?
We’re looking for volunteers to support those in self-isolation / older people who can’t get out, etc. We realise that many people do this informally and but we suspect there might be people who need some temporary help over the next few weeks.
Help with shopping: doorstep contact only. Shopping list left outside with envelope containing money. You buy carrier bags and leave shopping on doorstep. They’ll be at home!
Phoning regularly: a friendly voice can make a huge difference. Refer queries about medical matters to ‘dial 111’.
Posting letters / collecting prescriptions / running errands.
It would be good to have 2-3 volunteers per road. Each volunteer could end up with possibly 2-3 households to support with a back-up helpline.
We’re planning a leaflet drop to all Pixham households about the scheme. You add contact details for those on your road who you will deliver leaflets to.
To do this we need YOU. If we don’t get enough volunteers we won’t be able to do this.
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 19th if you can help. We’ll get leaflets out over the weekend.
