Breadalbane Community Larder - Update

As you may know, Breadalbane Community Larder has been Aberfeldy Co-op's 'FoodShare' partner since March, taking 'Best Before' and 'Use By' food which would otherwise be thrown away or sent to their bio-digester.  Not wanting to lose this valuable partnership, we have decided to continue collecting these items and have this food available outside the rear of the church building for people to come and help themselves during Larder opening times (11.00am -12.30pm each Saturday).

We will also be piloting two other ideas:

  • 1. alongside the 'FoodShare store' on a Saturday morning, customers can come to the Larder and collect items from the stock indoors, for a nominal fee. This reduces the stigma and helps maintain customer dignity
  • 2. emergency deliveries of food parcels will continue. This service can all be accessed by calling ‍ ‍0345 ‍30 111 00 Monday to Friday 9.00am - 5.00pm

If you know of anyone struggling to make ends meet please let them know about the support provided by Breadalbane Community Larder.

The Larder is a joint initiative of several local churches and also involves members of the local community.  If you would like to be involved please contact the team on ‍07513 ‍652597 or email breadalbanecommunitylarder@btinternet.com

Aberfeldy Parish Church has become anEco Congregation’. This, for the time being, is more a statement of our intent than a statement of how 'eco friendly' we are as a church, so we look forward to working together to be better stewards of God’s creation.

USE OF ABERFELDY PARISH CHURCH – December 2020

Dear friends

Managing a building that is closed for worship appears to have some challenges!  These can be mitigated if we all do our little bit. The following may seem to be draconian, but please help us by observing these rules & regs.

Entry to the building

Everyone planning to go to the building must text Annette – ‍07736 ‍384035

Yes, this does apply to all those simply popping in, as well as those who are required to go in for work or maintenance purposes.

Why – We are trying to reduce the numbers going in and out. We certainly don't want a clash with a funeral!

Signing in – Trace and Protect

We are all required to sign in every time we enter the building. Sheets are now provided at all three entrances. Once again this must be done by everyone, no matter how long you are in the building.

Why - If it was found someone later tested positive, we need to know who has been in the building on the same day. We must be able to trace you!

Doors

Please use the back door.

Why - The front door is only being used for funerals. We are trying to reduce the amount of cleaning required!

Bell Tower door is not for general use. The bell ringers use this each week and is to be cleaned by them after use.

Cleaning

We are required to clean down ALL the surfaces we touch. Wipes are provided for door handles, paper towel and hand gel can be used for bigger surfaces. There are additional cleaning materials in the kitchen.

If you are in the building and make a mess, I know that's unlikely to be YOU! Please clean up.

Why – We are not cleaning the church building as often as pre lockdown. It must be kept clean for funerals!

Toilets

There is only one toilet in use – the disabled toilet. Please do not use the others!

Why - We are not cleaning the other toilets, so please respect the limited hours we have to clean! Unless you are volunteering of course!!

Kitchen

Is out of use to all!

Key holders

The outer doors must be kept locked when the building is empty. Failure to do so invalidates our insurance policy. Please double check you have locked the door.

 General issues

If you spot anything that needs attention please contact Annette, who is now back off furlough. – ‍07736 ‍384035
