East Dean & Friston Community Watch - offers support and assistance to residents in the village

Contact is made by phoning one of three volunteers whose numbers are published in the Parish Magazine. The volunteer contact then rings around our 20+ volunteers to locate someone who can help with the request.  They offer to collect prescriptions, deliver medications, shopping, walking the dog, simple DIY, help with computer problems and more. They do not offer advice such as medical, housing, social services. A leaflet is included in new resident's packs and information is available on the village website.


Creating a vibrant community network across our catchment area by becoming a point of contact for your organisation or community group. Is this something you could do?

For an informal discussion around the role, please contact Community Engagement Co-ordinator, Lucy Cheshire on 07784 238569 or [email protected]
