The Village Notice Board


When the ‘lockdown’ was announced some months ago members of the Life Central Church stepped forward and delivered ‘Hello’ Cards to almost every household in Hagley and Halesowen. This was to offer support to anyone who needed help with food deliveries, prescription collections or even just a chat during the developing crisis. Their volunteers continuously staffed a helpline and co-ordinated with their large support team, the growing number of requests from Hagley residents. To date they have assisted over 150 local residents with several hundred support visits, and even with the rate of infections falling they still continue to give regular support to 10 residents. Hagley Parish Council have supported the Life Central Church during the past few months and wish to pass on our heartfelt thanks for the lifeline they have given to those in need. Currently the Church are supporting the Halesowen Food Bank, and they expect the demand for this service to increase greatly over the coming weeks as the Government’s Furlough Scheme comes to an end. Should anyone wish to contact the Church for continued help during the crisis or to donate food then please contact them on 0121 501 3542 or visit their web site at https://lifecentralchurch.org.uk/
