Coronavirus community support - help us spread the word


From North Devon Council

We are hearing reports that some of our elderly and vulnerable residents are still going going out shopping and we want them to know help is available so they don't put themselves at risk.

We have been working with town and parish councils, voluntary and community groups, and local businesses to help us collate a record of the community help available to our residents during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. You can find all of this information on the Communities and voluntary sector support pages of our website and we are updating this on an ongoing basis. Please use this resource and spread the word among your friends and family to do the same.

If you know about any community or voluntary activities that are not already listed on our website please email us at

To receive regular coronavirus email bulletins from us you can sign up on our website. These updates will keep you informed about how our services are changing due to the outbreak, as well as the latest advice and guidance gathered from trusted, official sources.

You can also sign up to receive email updates from Devon County Council, including how coronavirus is impacting their services, at Information is available too on the coronavirus page on their website.


The Northern Devon Voluntary Service (NDVS) have compiled some information on their website to provide guidance to groups on supporting volunteers, advice for volunteers, telephone befriending and safeguarding. There are also links to guidance on handling money and funding opportunities.

A link to the NDVS website is now available on North Devon Councilís webpages and a new section has now been created specifically to provide Support for Volunteers and Groups.


North Devon Council has launched a new community support hub to ensure the most vulnerable residents are not forgotten during the Coronavirus pandemic.

A new dedicated phoneline and online form are now available to those who need support who haven't already got help from family, friends, neighbours and their local community.

The service will vary according to where people live but will typically see the co-ordination of grocery shopping, prescription collections and social contact. In the major towns and villages, NDC will work alongside health and wellbeing partners One Northern Devon who have a network of volunteers on a street by street level. In the more rural areas, the Council will be working in partnership with parishes and other community groups set up to support people during the crisis.

We are asking that the public check that their local neighbours are getting support and if they are worried about them, then contact the support hub who can make enquiries.

The number to call is 01271 388280 and further information is available on the North Devon Councilís website by clicking on the link below:

Solar Photovoltaic Cells

PV Cells at Filleigh Village Hall

We have had 30 photovoltaic cells recently fitted to the hall. These were fitted by a local firm Earth Elements and are part of our 'Green Dream' to cut down our use of non renewable resources. In the future we hope to install an air-source heat pump to reduce our oil usage for heating.



The Hall mural

Filleigh Village Hall Mural



FVH Mural

We commissioned a local artist Vic Bailey together with Geoff Boucher to paint a mural on the large wall above the doors leading from the main hall into the meeting room. We wanted the mural to represent the main features of Filleigh. We are very pleased with the result and it adds a focal point to the hall.
