'Light Up the Ivers' starts 1 December 2020
#Light Up the Ivers
Next weekend the Christmas lights in The Ivers Parish will burst into life and the countdown to Christmas begins! To add some sparkle in this socially distanced world a new event for The Ivers will launch on 1st December.
#Light Up The Ivers will see windows lit up across the Parish. Each day the window or windows for that day will be revealed building over the weeks to locations in all the villages. You can see them from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each day until early January 2021.
This is a collaboration between the residents’ associations of Iver, Iver Heath, Richings Park and The Ivers Parish Council and you can follow the daily reveals on the dedicated Facebook page #Light Up The Ivers.
Each week a summary of the windows that have gone ‘live’ will be published on Facebook and the residents’ associations will be spreading the word as well.
If you want to donate to one of the 3 local causes you can find details on Facebook. The 3 causes are Maureen’s Christmas Parcel Appeal, #LightUp The Ivers through The Good Neighbour Scheme for vouchers, and The Ivers Parish Council Food Parcels.
Watch out for more details soon.

Foodbank service launched providing short term help for families in need
A service has been launched for delivery of food parcels to families. The first deliveries went out for the half-term holidays and were for families to cover the half term holidays.
The parcels are being funded through grants received by the Parish Council and families are referred to the scheme by partners including the local schools.
The scheme is being provided by volunteers and is raising funds to purchase food through a Just Giving page. Please consider whether you are able to help local people who need a little bit of extra help right now
