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.

RE-CREATE THE WONDERFUL MARTINEAU SINGERS' CHRISTMAS CONCERT
For those of you that look forward to our “Kick-off Christmas concert” we have prepared a virtual offering this year. This is based on selected recordings from the past ten years Christmas concerts, with our usual mix of sacred and popular music.
You are invited to watch and listen on YouTube
Have a happy Christmas and we look forward to normal service being resumed in 2021.
PS Pat Smith will have CDs of this “concert” available at various events during the holidays, with donations of £5 invited, in support of Old Pixham School and The Community Fridge.
Pixham and coronavirus
During the COVID19 pandemic, the management of Old Pixham School will be taking bookings where they conform with current government health guidelines.
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!
Children: write your letters to Santa: post them at Old Pixham School by December 21st if you'd like a reply.
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 email@example.com by Thursday 19th if you can help. We’ll get leaflets out over the weekend.
