Hambledon Covid-19 Action Plan

The Hambledon Action Plan (HAP) Team was set up by the Parish Council in March 2020 in response to the announcement of the first national lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Its aim was, and still is, to coordinate a team of volunteers offering support such as shopping to our most vulnerable residents.


If you would like some advice or assistance, please contact one of the team, as follows:


Jo Tester, the PC Clerk.      clerk@hambledon-pc.gov.uk. 07701 018321 (mobile) 02392 632106 

Paul Quinn, Chair PC.       p.quinn@hambledon-pc.gov.uk, 07850 646755 (mobile) 02392 632946 

Sam Meeson. Volunteer     themeesonfamily@gmail.com.  07770 924258 (mobile). 02392 632451


A subsection of the team was also established to coordinate assistance with the collection and drop-off of prescription requests and medication - working with Denmead Health Centre. 


If you would like some advice or assistance with prescriptions/medication collection/drop-off, please contact one of the team, as follows:
