About Us


What exactly is Southover Good Neighbours? 


It’s a way of putting neighbours in touch with each other when they need a bit of help with something.  


Who is it for?    It is for all residents of Southover to use (from Rotten Row in the North, end of Priory Street in the East, top of Bell lane in the West, the Railway in the South).  This includes volunteers who have registered to use it themselves.


Who are the volunteers?    We are all residents of Southover who are happy to be asked for help. All volunteers have been DBS checked - your security is our security.


How is it funded?     We are funded by a grant from Lewes Town Council


How does it work?   A small group of phone holders take it in turn to hold the phone and receive calls. They will answer your call, then Email the volunteers with your request. All users will need to register if they have not used the scheme before. This will be done following your first phone call to the scheme.
