Good Neighbours across Teignbridge recieve cream tea reward
Hundreds of good neighbours across Teignbridge have stepped up to help their communities during the Covid 19 crisis. Last week just a few of them were rewarded by Teignbridge Community and Voluntary Services [CVS] for their efforts and good neighbourliness with cream teas to share, all provided by local producers. Infrastructure charity Teignbridge CVS which supports the voluntary and community sector in Teignbridge.
Susan Wroe Chief Officer of Teignbridge CVS, said: ‘Simple good neighbourly acts, such as shopping, gardening, walking dogs and collecting prescriptions for people shielding, have made a significant difference. The importance of human contact for people shielding, shouldn’t be underestimated.’
Four projects from across the district were picked from the entries and each enjoyed a Devon Cream tea (jam on top) and they were:
Jam from Shute Fruit at Bishopsteignton and clotted cream and [freshly baked] scones Shaldon Bakery. Both local businesses refused payment, Shaldon bakery only accepting a donation towards ingredients; Lori from Shute Fruit said we were happy to donate the jam to CVS who have been doing a brilliant job during this crisis.
