Providing people in West Somerset’s communities with easier access to information and services.Hello, I would like to introduce myself as the new Village Agent for West Somerset. My name is Kristy Hirons and I am looking forward to being able to meet many of you within our community very soon.
The role of a Village Agent is to bridge the gap between isolated, excluded, vulnerable and lonely individuals and statutory and/or voluntary organisations which offer specific solutions to identified needs. All of the support that I offer is free and confidential.
· Do you live alone, have a problem and are not sure who to turn to?
· Do you need some help finding the right agency, service or people to help?
· Are you a carer that needs help and support?
· Does your community have a collective problem that needs a kick-start?
· You’re just finding life a bit hard going at the moment?
I am here to help.I am based in Minehead but will visit all areas of West Somerset. I will be available at the Talking Cafe at The Beach Hotel, Minehead every Monday morning between 10am and 1pm. There, you will able to book an appointment to see me or just pop in for a chat if you are passing. I work 5 days a week and will answer my mobile if I am able to. If I don’t answer, please do leave me a message and I will call you back as soon as I can.
You may see me walking around the villages or at local groups and coffee mornings. If you do, please come and say “Hello”, I’d love to have a chat and perhaps a biscuit or two! If you’d prefer, I am more than happy to visit you in your home.
So any query, large or small – get in touch.
