The Mary Tavy
Jubilee Group was created by residents of the village of Mary Tavy
to undertake projects for the benefit of the community.
It was set up in the year of the Queen's Diamond
Jubilee and evolved out of an action group which constructed a
footpath, Jubilee Walk. The Group has now put on a huge range
events and has arranged
improvements to the village.
The group is a charity,
set up as a trust.
Take a look at our
facebook page, which will include information on
forthcoming events, planning applications and other
items of interest to the community in Mary Tavy:
for Covid-19 community support:
A new group, Mary Tavy Community Support, was set up
in the early stages of the Coronavirus crisis.
Mary Tavy Jubilee Group made available up to £500
from its funds to help support the group with any
expenses, including printing of their initial flyer.
Devon County Council later announced a Covid-19
Prompt Action Fund which we, as a charitable trust,
were able to apply for and our application has been
successful with £495 being available - again to
support the work of Mary Tavy Community Support.
This includes transport costs for shopping, medical
or vet trips, for telephone costs for befriending,
for purchase of protective clothing and sanitizer,
and for printing.
Therefore volunteers with Mary Tavy Community
Support, undertaking trips for those who are
self-isolating and vulnerable - whether for shopping
or a medical appointment - can get travel costs
reimbursed, and would be entitled to PPE and
sanitizer to ensure they are safe.
Whether you are a volunteer or someone in need of
help, contact Mary Tavy Community Support,
email@example.com, 01822 811019.
Finally, please stay
safe, look after yourselves and others, and be
thankful we live in a village with so many people
willing to do all they can to support those who need
it during this difficult time.
