All at Coxhoe Cares would like to say a massive thank you to all our current volunteers in Coxhoe and Quarrington Hill. They are currently supporting our community who are vulnerable, self-isolating and needing some support during these challenging times. We would also like to say a massive thank you to Coxhoe United for their very kind donation.
We have a number of volunteers making weekly phone calls to service users for a friendly chat, and doing shopping as and when required. We also have volunteers doing deliveries such as leaflets and care packages. This week we will be delivering our Holiday Activities Healthy Food (HAWHF) Project for children. This project has been supported by a grant from the East Durham Rural Corridor Area Action Partnership (AAP).
We still have a number of volunteers available to support you, if you feel you are:
- struggling to get your basic food needs
- have other difficulties, or
- would just like to chat to someone
Please do not sit at home worrying, call us and see what can be done. We will do our best to help you.
We continue to work with Coxhoe Village Hall and Quarrington Hill Community Centre to provide you support. If you live in Coxhoe please contact Claire or Angela by text or by calling 07988 283287.
If you live in Quarrington Hill, as well as Claire above, please contact Linda on 07766 385544
You can email Claire on firstname.lastname@example.org

Residents are being asked to give their views in six consultations which are open till 23 November 2020.
Results will be collated and we will let you know about them through this website and in a future issue of the Chronicle.
The consultations are about various important matters in and around our villages including traffic and parking problems in Coxhoe and along Cornforth Lane, Quarrington Hill Churchyard and neighbourhood planning in each village. There is a page on each survey which gives more information. You can find and take part in the surveys on the Consulting our Communities page.
Durham County Council have advised of temporary closure to vehicular traffic from 9am on Thursday 5 November 2020 of West Parade and Sycamore Close a 90 metre length between its junctions with the B6291 and the track leading to Grange House Coxhoe. The closure is necessary to enable flooding investigation works to be undertaken which will probably take some 2 hours within a 5 hour window to complete.
Throughout the period of closure an alternative route will not be available to vehicles.
This year, we are not able to hold the usual commemoration events in our villages. Keeping our communities safe is paramount.
Whilst a minister will lay a wreath on Remembrance Sunday at 11:00 in Coxhoe and follow the Act of Remembrance observing two minutes’ silence, we, and many other communities reluctantly are asking you to Remember from Home, and, respectfully, please do not come to our War Memorials at 11:00.
If you wish to pay your respects, we ask people to please stagger visits across the days around Remembrance. We have worked with Coxhoe Village Hall and Coxhoe Primary School to make the poppy display pictured left, at the Village Hall, and the flagpole features a special ‘Lest We Forget’ flag. Thank you to everyone involved.
Instead, please try to display a poster and Remember from your home or your doorstep at 11.00 on Remembrance Sunday.
You may wish to recite the Act of Remembrance at home or on your doorstep at 11:00:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
The Last Post would usually be sounded, followed by a two Minute Silence, which we ask all our communities to observe together. Reveille is then usually sounded, followed by The Kohima Epitaph:
When you go home, tell them of us and say,
For your tomorrow, we gave our today.
You can download poppy posters from www.britishlegion.org.uk.
Stay Safe, but please Remember.
Lest We Forget.
