COVID 19 Update - 31/07/20

Please continue to follow current government guidelines and together we can beat this!

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you have to go out – (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Do not leave home if you, or anyone within your household, has symptoms.

In line with current government guidance (at time of writing) and until further notice, the Green End Day Club, Alconbury Thursday Club, the Chatterbox and Sounds Good groups, the Sawtry Car Scheme, Sawtry Man Cave and the weekly Coffee Shop will remain closed.

We are delighted to announce that our Charity Shop reopened on Monday 22nd June. Please note our new procedures for both making donations and also when shopping to help keep everyone safe. Please call 01487 208026 to book in your donation.

Sawtry Foodbank is continuing to serve those who need the support. They can be contacted on 07743 593863 or emailed at .

The Sawtry Eye magazine for August_September 20 has been published as usual and delivered house-to-house in the normal way. The Eye is also available to download from the Sawtry Eye page along with back issues to October 2008.
