Are you lost at sea without the Anchor Inn?

Are the kids going off the rails now that Peco is closed?

Or maybe you’ve already had enough of those arrows on the floor at Tesco, especially when you forgot to pick up tomato ketchup half-way round..

However you are dealing with the lockdown, we’d love to hear from you. We are compiling a living record of everyday stories from around the village, so that we can share the experiences with everyone.

Why? Because we are all in this together, so the more we can connect with each other’s common experiences, the stronger our collective well-being through these isolating times.

So whether it’s sharing a handy trick for keeping the kids occupied, a funny story about a home haircut disaster, or you might just want to let off steam about being stuck indoors all day – no subject is off limits. The more varied the stories, the more colourful the picture we can paint of Beer life in lockdown.

If you are interested in being interviewed for the project, please contact Annie Boalch on 07968  157136 or email If you would prefer to remain anonymous, that’s OK too

– the more the merrier!
