Littleton help scheme

For the past 19 weeks the Littleton help scheme has been administered by LINKERS who, when it was their duty-day, stayed at home to ensure that any request for help was fulfilled by allocating it to a HELPER.   It has worked efficiently and well.  

The scheme peaked at 35 requests a week but as more and more people obtained supermarket and pharmacy delivery slots, the numbers have dwindled. Overall, approaching 300 requests for help have been met, but, in the last few weeks, have only averaged five.  Consequently, the scheme has been changed. 

Every person who requested help in June and July has been contacted and offered the help of dedicated helpers. Only a dozen have indicated that they still need help. This morning each of the 12 families have been given the telephone numbers of two dedicated helpers who will personally ensure, over the coming two months, that their needs for shopping and prescriptions will be met.  The system will be reviewed again by 1st October.

Littleton WhatsApp group have kindly offered to provide a fallback for providing urgent help;  they have the network to harness the wider community to meet needs.  In these circumstances please ring either Chris Rice (01962 880937) or Kate Chappell. (07717 804080) from the WhatsApp group.

Investigation Launched After Woman Raped In Badger Farm 19/07/2020

Police are investigating a report of a rape of a 31-year-old woman which happened in Winchester (July 19).

Police were called just before 1pm following the incident, which happened in a wooded area behind Ivy Close and Honeysuckle Close, Badger Farm.

Since then, officers have been carrying out a search and making enquiries in the area, and you will continue to see a police presence.

The woman is being supported by specialist officers.

Detective Inspector Emma Crute said: “We want to appeal to anyone who may have been in the woodland behind Ivy Close and Honeysuckle Close, or who has driven in the nearby area, and believes they have seen anyone suspicious.

“The man is believed to have a northern accent and we want anyone who was in this area this morning, through to around 1pm, to cast their mind back or check any dash cam footage you may have.

“You may have important information that could be vital to our investigation. If you saw anything that looked suspicious or out of the ordinary, please contact us.

“Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting the reference 44200268860, or approach any of our officers who are out making enquiries in the area.”
