Gotham Help Line

The Gotham Help line has worked well since the lockdown began and we would like to thank all those volunteers that have offered to help, we know some of you have not been contacted for help, but this is because it seems that neighbours have jumped in all over the village to help their neighbours. We are not getting many calls on the Help Line currently, so to give the phone handlers a bit more time, we are cutting the hours down from 9am – 8pm to 9am to 4pm. The service is still there, so please use it if you need it.
Some people who have seen hardship due to the virus have taken advantage of our Covid grants we are offering from monies we received from Notts CC , but there are still some available. If you need help, contact the Help Line or email to
