Food Bank stocks are low!


The summer of 2019 sees many empty shelves.  Whilst donations during the harvest season and the run up to Christmas filled the shelves this supply has now all been used up.  The highlighted items have run out on occasion and are most likely to be needed.  Since the need fluctuates with demand and the donations that are received these items may change from time to time. 

Tinned Vegetables – peas – carrots – sweetcorn – green beans – tomatoes

Tinned Fruit All types e.g. Mandarins, Peaches, Pears, Fruit Cocktail

Tinned Meat – Meat Pies – Stewed Meat – Slicing Meat (ham corned beef)

Sponge Puddings – Custard – Rice puddings and similar

Baked Beans, Rice, Breakfast Cereal, Fruit Juice, Squash, Tea, Coffee, Biscuits, Jam, Marmalade, Peanut Butter, Pasta Sauce

Long life food from the above list (no fresh food please!) can be donated in our collecting boxes at The United Reformed Church in Street as well as Morrison’s and Earthfare stores in Glastonbury.  There is also a small box in Nationwide. All the churches in “Churches Together in Glastonbury” will also take donations. Many of the churches in the wider coverage area of BA6 and BA16 will take your donations for the foodbank but please check with them first.  Cash donations are also welcome – please consider filling in a Foodbank Gift aid form so that income tax can be reclaimed on your donation.

Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group Event 12-02-2019

Street Parish Council are hosting an open evening from 5pm to 8pm on the 12th February 2019 at Street Parish Rooms in Leigh Road. The event will be a drop in session, allowing people to view the progress of the Neighbourhood Plan for Street and the results from the Community Survey.

The event also provides an opportunity for you to get involved by signing up to join the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. We’re looking for people that are passionate about Street and have skills that can help Street Parish Council develop the Neighbourhood Plan. You may be somebody with a great analytical mind, someone that knows everything about the history of Street, a former town planner or you could be a graphic design guru that can help with production for promotional materials. We’re looking for a diverse mix of people that can help add value to the Neighbourhood Plan.

Throughout 2019 we’ll have several meeting as a steering group at different key stages of the Neighbourhood Plan development. These will typically take the form of an evening meeting held at the Parish Rooms.

We look forward to seeing you on the 12th February.
