Opening is limited due to the Government Coronavirus Lockdown.  Their current activities have been organised to help those in need in this period. Their usual activities are suspended.

The ‘Limestone House Foodbank’ opened on Easter Tuesday from 10.00am to 2.00pm and will continue to open this week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. From the following week the Foodbank will continue to open on Monday to Friday as a continuous service.

Although the usual Limestone House work for the community is currently suspended, on Mondays and Fridays staff are cooking lunches, which are not free,  and a dinner and dessert are delivered to vulnerable people  isolated due to physical or mental illness, age or the Coronavirus isolation in the villages above.
