Coronavirus update:

Please note: There are no tea parties currently scheduled.

Oving Parish Community Watch volunteers are currently supporting residents with help shopping and are working closely with other organisations within the parish to provide help and assistance when needed

Some of the OPCW team:

Oving Parish Community Watch ( OPCW) is a programme that operates throughout the parish of Oving. It is run entirely by volunteers who offer a range of services to the local community.

These can include:

  • Transport to and from local medial appointments when public transport is either not available or difficult.
  • Collection of shopping if you are unable to go out because of illness or bad weather
  • Guidance as to where to apply for specific help relating to housing or completing other forms
  • Help with gardening on a one-off basis

Tea Parties

OPCW also provides a monthly FREE tea party open to everyone who lives in the Parish or has a former relationship with it.  From January to March the tea parties include soup, rolls and tea and cakes and then from March until December an afternoon tea with sandwiches, savouries and tea and cake are available.  An opportunity to chat with other people from the village and make new friends.  Special events are also organised during the year including an outing and a Christmas lunch.

Details of the dates and times are available on the noticeboard located in the Village.  These events are completely free, run by volunteers and are a great way to bring our community together.

Please note that due to the current Coronavirus, the tea parties have been postponed.



Please contact our administrator (details below) if you have any questions or would like to help and have any specific experience that might be useful.
