Gladestry Community Support Group
Dear fellow Gladestry villagers,
In response to the advice from both the government and local NHS staff , several people in the village have come forward offering to support those who might need some help in the coming weeks during this very challenging time.
None of us know how this will affect us so we are keen that EVERYONE knows there is a support system in place, as and when people need to access it. It may be that you are self-isolating, in the more vulnerable category, have mobility issues or your relatives who would normally support you are isolating themselves. There is a team of people locally who are happy to help in whatever way is needed. For example:
There is a centralised number you can call if you would like to be included in this support scheme and if no one is there in person to answer your call please leave a message and we will make sure someone in the care team will get back to you as soon as they can.
There is a large team ready and willing to help

We will do our best to make sure this letter goes to everyone however if you know of anyone who did not receive one please let us know and we will make sure they get one.

Most Covid restrictions have now ended, but heartbreakingly, many older people have lost their confidence in going out and are still stuck inside. We urgently need volunteers, in all areas of Powys, to support lonely and isolated older people to enjoy getting outside again after Covid-19. Thank you so much for your support.
Please see attached and below campaign from Gail Hamer, Chief Officer at Age Cymru Powys.

The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.

Gladestry WI. Due to the Coronavirus restrictions and the difficulties that we have encountered with trying to maintain some semblance of a formal WI meeting for our members, many of whom do not have or are not savvy with modern technology, it is with no few regrets that Gladestry WI ladies have voted almost unanimously to suspend our membership of the WI organisation until April 2022. We hope that we will then be able to resume “business as normal”. In the meantime it is our intention to meet as an informal group of “Ladies that Meet”. Either for a pub lunch or an afternoon high tea, at which, we can maintain contact, chat, catch up or just enjoy being able to meet again. This meeting of Ladies is not restricted to members of the WI nor to any age group or those with children in tow. We would like to invite anyone from Gladestry and the surrounding areas to join us. We will post details of our first meeting on this website and on the various notice boards in the community. Please join us, we would love to see you and will greatly welcome your company. Hoping to see you soon. Sue and Sian, Gladestry WI. For further information contact Sue on 07815 496898 or Sian on 07769 703637
