You may be aware that The Yew Tree will be doing takeaways again every Friday from this Friday, 29th January between 5pm and 9pm. A menu should have been delivered to you but also see here: https://theyewtreepub.co.uk/takeaway
The takeaways are on a collection basis only but, if you are an Avon Dassett resident and shielding, self-isolating or uncomfortable with visiting the pub to collect your order, the Parish Council Covid Support Group will arrange for one of its volunteers to collect on your behalf and deliver your meal to your door. If you wish to arrange this, please follow the steps below:-
Please order directly with The Yew Tree, but let the pub know that someone else will be collecting the order on your behalf.
Please leave a telephone number if they are not there to take your call. Payment will need to be made in advance and the pub will call you (probably on Friday) to take payment.
Once you have placed the order, please contact the PC Covid helpline on 07860-702749 (by text, phone, or WhatsApp) or by email to email@example.com to let them have your details, details of the order and collection time from the Yew Tree. They will then arrange for a volunteer to collect the order and deliver it to you. Should anything change, for instance the collection time, please advise the PC Covid Helpline as soon as possible.
If for any reason, you are unable to make payment in advance by phone, please contact the Helpline to discuss and they will do their best to sort out an alternative arrangement.
The Yew Tree is also doing a special Valentine’s Day box menu – if you would like details, please call them on 01295-690844.

COVID-19 Vaccine Scams
Please see the poster above and attached below:
The NHS will:
- Never ask for payment – the vaccine is free
- Never ask for your bank details
- Never arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
- Never ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport
If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious
about an email you have received, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726 which is free
If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft, you should
report this directly to Action Fraud either online; actionfraud.police.uk or via
phone 0300 123 2040.
If you have any information relating to vaccine fraud you can stay 100%
anonymous by contacting Crimestoppers COVID Fraud Hotline online;
covidfraudhotline.org or phone 0800 587 5030.
What you can do to support your community during COVID-19
During these challenging times, it’s crucial to support those in your community. Here are some practical ways to do so.
- Volunteers from across Warwickshire are needed to help support Warwickshire County Council’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic as part of a national testing programme. You can register your interest here.
- Have a phone conversation – we are currently looking for volunteers who can make befriending calls to people who are shielding. Click here to register.
- Community Volunteers – we are also working alongside local mutual aid groups to refer volunteers who are happy to run errands such as prescription collection and grocery shopping for people needing to isolate. Click here to register.
- Give blood or plasma – if you are in good health, giving blood is a great way to support your community during this time of need. Register here.
- Food banks – Food bank donations are needed more than ever before in the UK. Find your nearest Food bank.
Get in touch
For further information, please contact your local CAVA Volunteering Coordinator.
The good news is that the vaccine is now on its way. More information below. But just a reminder NOT to phone your local surgery about this. Invitations will initially be made via telephone and text message. Invitations will be sent gradually according to both the supply of vaccine from the NHS, and according to the priority groups set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination & Immunisation.
Please leave the phone lines of local surgeries clear so they can deal with all the other urgent health needs of the community.
