Biggar Community Action Group
Biggar Community Action Group began in March 2020 and was set up to respond to the Coronavirus crisis in our community. `Members of Biggar Community Council, WomanKind Clydesdale, Biggar Church, Biggar Medical Practice, local businesses and other organisations came together initially to quickly find a way to provide assistance to isolated and vulnerable people in our community. From this initial meeting, Biggar Community Action Group was formed and our services have developed according to needs as they have arisen.
Our services and projects include:
shopping collection and delivery
prescription collection and delivery
a listening ear service for isolated or vulnerable people
a hot meals service to ensure that those who may not be able to cater well for themselves have 2 nourishing meals a week
boxes of kindness for people who may feel isolated or lonely during this difficult time
social history project.
