It's Nearly Spring - Time to Spruce Up the Village
11th March 2 - 4pm
On Saturday 11th March we need lots of people to come and help pick up all the litter that has accumulated round the village over the winter. MVP will be stationed in the Horse and Groom garden to register you (from 1:30pm) and hand out bags, gloves and litter pickers. Come and tell us which bit you want to do. The more people come, the more areas we can cover.
The much-awaited defibrillators have arrived! After a significant delay due to a change in the specification for the boxes in which they are being mounted, the three defibrillators will installed at the following locations:
- On the outside of The Horse & Groom on The Street
- On the outside of Mortimer Surgery on Victoria Road
- On the outside of the Sansome & George office on West End Road
MVP thanks those three businesses for agreeing to host the defibrillators for the benefit of the whole village. Two of the defibrillators are being funded by MVP and the third by Tadley First Responders from a grant received from AWE for this purpose. If you call the emergency services with a medical situation which needs a defibrillator, you will be given instructions on how to get one. The defibrillator itself is self-explanatory so anyone can confidently use it.
More information on the local First Responder service is available here.
MVP AGM - Saturday March 11th
The MVP Committee invites you to join us in the Community Centre at 4:30pm on Saturday 11th March for the MVP’s Annual General Meeting. Everyone is welcome. Enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee, a slice of cake and the entertainment provided by local music group Achoired Taste. We are looking to bolster our team, so if you are able to volunteer your time to the MVP then we’d love to hear from - also if you want to comment on what we do.
Christian Aid Week 14th to 20th May 2017
Christian Aid Week was set up 60 years ago to support work with refugees in Europe following the Second World War. Since then, millions of impoverished, displaced and starving people in the developing world and war-torn countries around the globe have benefited from help from people who give up their time to get out and collect from homes in cities, towns and villages across the UK.
If you have time and would like to help drop and collect Christian Aid envelopes through doors in Mortimer please contact Deborah Griffiths on 0785 725 2187 or email@example.com.
Recycle for Charities
Quite a number of people in the village collect a wide variety of items for charity: postage stamps, ink cartridges, milk bottle tops, bras etc. Please see the link in the left hand menu for a new page where this information is recorded to make it easier for more people to not throw away items that can generate money for charities. How to get your collection included is also there.

Café B is a not-for-profit café in Burghfield Common staffed by volunteers. We are in need of more volunteers, in a variety of different roles, in order to operate effectively and to expand our opening times. No previous experience is necessary as training will be given. You could help out for a full morning, a couple of hours, once a week, once a fortnight, once a month, or just come and help set up or close. We are happy to work around your requirements.
To find out more please contact Deborah Griffiths on 0785 725 2187 or firstname.lastname@example.org
