Reston and Auchncrow Community Larder

The Reston and Auchencrow Community Larder is owned and operated by the Community Council Resilient Group.

The Larder has no affiliations with the village hall other than as patrons.

The 'Community Larder has been operating for over a year now and has proven to be very successful. Due to its success and both the present need  and future aspirations for the communities we plan to keep it going for as long as it is supported.

We have signed up to get weekly donations through the 'Fare share' scheme. This means we will get food twice weekly from supermarkets for the larder. there will be a small cost to the community council to be a member of the scheme, but we hope that this will be worthwhile for the communities.

So please use it, it is for All.

Please feel free to donate also, either in the Larder at the rear of the village hall or in Reston Provisions shop, both places have donation boxes.

More information is on the Facebook page and here on the Resilient Page.

    On a good note we've seen some really great Christmas lights on display throughout the village, a good hearted gesture by some ladies that dropped off Woolly sheep on peoples doorsteps and gates, with competitions from the Riverside people to keep both adults and children busy before Christmas, with their Elves quiz. Today we received the latest Drone footage of the New Railway station, work has been progressing well, check out the Railway station page.
