Stroud District Council Neighbourhood Wardens engage with the local community to help support vulnerable people, offer free home security and crime prevention advice and to advise on dealing with bogus callers, antisocial behaviour, hate crime and bullying.
In addition, they work to keep our environment clean and green by dealing with such issues as litter, fly tipping, dog fouling and graffitti.
Sadly, we have had a stream of wardens for Eastington area come and go, and for a while did not have our ‘own’. Happily we now do! – contact Katie Marwick at :-

Community Wellbeing service.
The Village Agent service has now been replaced by a service called ‘Community Connectors’ or ‘Community Wellbeing Service’. This is run by GRCC – (Gloucestershire Rural Community Council see www.grcc.org.uk/)
It is a free and confidential service aiming to connect you to the appropriate local assistance (charity, organisation etc) if you have problems related to mental or physical health, general fitness, social isolation, debt, berevement or other challenges to your ‘wellbeing’.
Info is available at https://www.grcc.org.uk/individuals-and-families/community-wellbeing-service
To make a referral to the Cotswold Community Wellbeing Service you can contact your GP Surgery OR contact GRCC by phone on 01452 528491 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
