Are you self-isolating or restricting your social contacts to protect your health and well-being?


Do you need some help with day-to-day tasks like collecting shopping or prescriptions?


Would it be reassuring to have a daily call from someone to make sure that you are okay?


A team of volunteers are willing and able to help you with these things. You will though understand that volunteers are not able to enter your home or undertake personal care in any way.


Just call 07585158569  or e-mail and we will do our best to organise help or assistance.  For regular assistance please call between 9am and 5pm.  Of course in an emergency call at any time.


In a medical emergency, contact 999; for a non-emergency health issue it is 111 or


If you are willing to offer help please contact the number or e-mail above: your assistance will be appreciated.


We will also make over the two village noticeboards so that any further notices can be posted on them. As the Rudford board has to be locked to stay dry, please place anything you would like put on it in the Village Hall letterbox.


This initiative is coordinated by Rudford and Highleadon Parish Council, Rudford and Highleadon Village Hall and St.Mary’s Church, Rudford.


The Council held a meeting via Zoom on 8 June to consider a planning application for a bungalow at 'Rectory Meadows', Church Lane, Rudford.  The minutes of that meeting can be found on the Parish Council Meetings page of the website.


The following highways matters remain outstanding: kerbing work at Highleadon turn, 30mph sign on corner of Buttermilk Lane, the footpath on Buttermilk Lane, repairs to damage to the verges on Park Road, signpost on the Upleadon/Hartpury road junction

The Chair is continuing to press the County Council Footpath Officer to improve the steps into the field opposite Church Lane.

If you want to contact the Parish Council, please do so by e-mailing or phoning 790831.




The Parish Council is keen to hear residents’ views on the future of the Parish.  In particular, we’d like to know what you think about:


The availability of houses – should there be any new houses built in the Parish?  If so, how many, where and should there be any guidance on style?


The environment of the Parish – what matters to you and what should the Council do to promote or protect it?


Car transport – are you concerned by the traffic on the B4215, or is it just a fact of life?  Should we provide public electric charging points for cars?  


Public transport – are there enough buses?  And can you get to and from them safely?  


Any matters relating to our Parish that we should be taking up with the County Council/Highways Authority for their long term planning?


What else are priorities for you and your family?


Over the summer of 2020, we plan to consult with residents.  We had planned to hold an open event on Monday, 27 April at 7.30 in the Village Hall but this has now been postponed.  We would still be interested in hearing your views, which can be e-mailed to
