 Volunteer Support Number

The Coronavirus pandemic seemed like a very remote concern when it reared its ugly head in Wuhan province, China, in late 2019, but in a few short months it has ground the world's cogs to a halt, and the Lambourn Valley is no exception.

As expected the residents have stepped up to this challenge on all fronts, to support each other at this difficult time and to protect the weak, the vulnerable and those who have been advised to self-isolate,

This page is an additional resource,  to disseminate information on both a practical and psychological level, where you can hear from the horse's mouth (which seems entirely appropriate ), what help is available to you in the community


These short chats will offer advice on how to deal with the anxiety that the coronavirus has inevitably generated in the community.

Tips and hints from experts will offer comfort, advice and information

4 Legs Community Radio


On April 13 2018, one man's vision of bringing an internet radio station to the Lambourn Valley came to fruition. Broadcasting just one day a week, 4Legs was designed to represent all aspects of life in the Lambourn Valley, with an eclectic mix of music, entertainment and chat from across this area of rural West Berkshire. 

'Knock Knock with Suzi Cairns' was first broadcast on launch day, introducing the founder and architect of the project, Chris Capel. Subsequently, it has been Suzi's mission to give a voice to the women of the Lambourn Valley in a series of in-depth interviews.
