Parish Visitors

We have a team of Lockerley Parish Visitors who are members of church congregations.  They are trained and supported to offer a listening ear and time to chat for those who are anxious, afraid, lonely or unhappy. They are not professional counsellors, carers or social workers, but ordinary people who are willing to be alongside you when you need it most.  Their service is free to those of all faiths and none, with no strings attached. To arrange a visit, please contact James Pitkin or Sally Masters – by phone, email or letter James Pitkin – see back page, Sally Masters, Butts Green House, Butts Green, Lockerley SO51 0JG, 017 94-34 02 15
