Edith Weston Village Store & Post Office are coordinating home deliveries of food & other provisions from their shop, through a team of local volunteers, to people self isolating in the community.
If you cannot leave your home to shop for food because you are self-isolating, you can call the Store on 01780 722164, and place your order over the phone. They will endeavour to deliver your order asap, but if you can order in the morning it will help them deliver it sooner to you.
Please note the new slightly contracted opening hours for the store below. This will allow the store more time to re-stock shelves , coordinate deliveries and maintain employee distancing in the workplace.
The Fox has been able to source some boxes of basic provisions (Foxy Boxes) for the at risk people in our community.
The boxes contain basic essentials, typically milk, bread, eggs, potatoes, grapes, apples, bananas, oranges, cabbage, onions, mushrooms, carrots, cucumber and cherry tomatoes and cost £20.
One box per household can be purchased by calling The Fox on 01780 720991 before 8pm this evening (Friday 20th) for collection or delivery between 11am and noon tomorrow (Saturday 21st). Payment must be by cash or cheque.
There is a possibility that this may be available again in the coming days and we’ll update the website if that should occur.
In order to maintain a level of fairness please only take this offer up if you are self-isolating or in the at risk group (over-70, underlying health condition).
A full boot load of rubbish was collected around the village today by a large group of volunteers from the village.
A large proportion of the rubbish collected was found along Edith Weston Road and Station Road, so the luminous tabards came in very handy to keep everyone safe along the road side.
It took 10 volunteers about 2 hours to scour the village and surrounding roads to complete an entire sweep of the area.
In the future it would be greatly appreciated by all in the village, if every now and again when walking around the village you could remember to take an empty bag with you and be on the look out for litter, it really doesn’t take much effort to keep the village looking clean and tidy.
Also some less than pleasant items were collected 💩 and again, for those of you who have the appropriate bags and are used to picking this up after your own dogs and disposing of it in the red bins around the oval, it would be especially appreciated of you could be on the look out for this as well. Some of you have been already, which is commendable, but we need more of this to help eradicate the dog fouling problem completely!
The Parish Council has been asked to organise a litter pick and this has been arranged for Saturday March 7th. (Hopefully we won’t have a fourth weekend storm in a row) . If you would like to take part than please come to the car park of The Fox 10.30 – 11 am.
The Parish Council has some litter pickers, high viz tabards and bin bags but if you have these items please bring them along. Make sure you are dressed for whatever the weather is forecast to be and wear protective gloves.

With the dark mornings and evenings there appears to be a rash of dog fouling on the pavements along Church Street. Please be a responsible dog owner and clear up after your pet. If walking your dog in the dark please keep your dog on a lead and carry a torch – always carry bags and ensure that any mess is cleared up immediately.
Perhaps better known as dog roundworm the embryonated eggs of which can be ingested by humans causing disease called toxocariasis. Young children are particularly at risk as it is picked up by ingestion of eggs from infected dog faeces. It is fortunately rare but rare things do happen. Dog mess is not only unpleasant but a potential source of an unpleasant infection.
The vast majority of dog owners conscientiously clean up after their dogs and please continue to be vigilant when walking your dog. If users of The Oval see an infringement please continue to challenge and point out that there are bins provided.
