A message from our partners;

At the beginning of 2020 none of us could have imagined the impact that the Coronavirus would have globally and indeed on the community of Loudwater. In order to address the needs of the community, St Peters Church are using their “Love Loudwater outreach”. The Co-ordinator at St Peters is Emily Plumridge.

Before the lockdown St Peter's Church posted over 2000 leaflets to residents in Loudwater offering support and help with shopping for food and essential items, collecting medical supplies, having a chat, and praying with and for people. We had a great response, and in addition to members of our congregation, many people from the Loudwater community contacted us to volunteer their time.

As a result, we have been able, and continue to, help vulnerable people within our parish and further afield with prescription and medication collection and shopping they have also been supporting those who are lonely, afraid or struggling in these strange times making sure they keep in contact at least once a week via a telephone conversation. If you are isolated and would like help or support, please contact Emily
at love@loudwater.org or on 01628 308 372.

Also, if you have children who need to be entertained while they are on holiday Mark Humphries,
young people’s pastor at St Peters, has some very entertaining things for them to take part in at St
Peters Kids on YouTube, just search St Peters Loudwater.

Loudwater Forum has been helping in the community, Chairman Paul Cogger said; ‘In these
unprecedented times Loudwater Forum has sought to keep open its links with its members, the
neighbourhood police and the councillors keeping people informed of important information relating
to the virus and the help available in the community. In addition it has also established strong links
with St Peters Church Loudwater, assisting them with their program Love Loudwater to provide vital
support in the community, and with Cherrymead Surgery, Loudwater where members and other
residents have boosted morale of staff by supplying them with cakes and tracking down some supplies
of hand sanitiser.’
