Both Larders were established over two years ago by a group of villagers. In Paulton it was led by Kayleigh Paul helped by BANES Councillors Liz Hardman and Grant Johnson and the Methodist Minister Martin Slocombe.

In Temple Cloud it was led by a group known as the Larder Ladies.

Both groups started soon after the first UK lockdown was announced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The items available from each Larder come from two main sources, Tesco for both Larders and the Co-op in Paulton for Paulton and the Co-ops in Farrington Gurney and Marksbury for the Temple Cloud Larder.

Both Liz Hardman and Liz Brakspear agreed that with the rapidly rising fuel and food prices, the need for both Larders has greatly increased and they foresee this is likely to continue.

So do donate if you have any spare tins of food or non-perishable food items.The Temple Cloud Larder is by Cameley Surgery and the Paulton Larder is in the car park of the Methodist Church.
