Community Events and Courses
Big changes at Holbeach Community Larder
We have a new designated mobile phone number - 07511 091637 and can no longer guarantee to respond to private Facebook messages.
If you need a parcel or want to make a referral for someone else you can ring this number between 9.00-5.00 any day of the week or you can leave a voice message or send a text. You can send texts out of hours but please don't expect the phone to be answered.
We need to know the following:
- Your name & address
- The number of adults and children in your household
- Any special needs eg. babies, pets, or allergies
We are also changing our session times so that we can re-open our cafe on a Friday.
Our new session day will be on Wednesdays 10.00-12.00 at the Reading Rooms on Church Street. You can now get a parcel by asking an agency to refer you eg CAB, a school or Housing etc. or by self-referral using 07511 091637.
There are three options:
- We can deliver your parcel - in which case it will be delivered between 12.00-1.00 on a Wednesday.
- You can arrange to pick up a pre-ordered parcel from the Reading Rooms at 12.00 on a Wednesday.
- You can call into the Reading Rooms in person between 10.00-12.00 when we will be offering a limited number of walk-in referrals under strict social distancing and hygiene guidelines.
We will be able to provide parcels in emergency situations on other days but we would expect these to be made by referral agencies, not individuals.
Please note: we will not be running walk-in sessions on a Friday (until further notice) so that we can give the cafe space to re-open.
Thank you for your patience and thank you to all those who continue to donate us both food and money, and we will continue to serve the local community in this way for as long as we are needed.
