Stansted Helpline...

...was launched by the then Stansted Association of Christian Churches in order to offer practical assistance to those Stansted residents who may have no friends or relatives nearby who are able to help.
Helpline is able to offer, for example; transport, companionship, shopping, collecting prescriptions etc. and are able to provide information, advice and contact numbers for other organisations.
The service can be contacted 9am-4pm Monday to Friday by telephoning : 07704 553727 This is a mobile telephone held by one of ten volunteers, on a rota basis, who log the requests. A comprehensive list of approximately 45 volunteers, is then consulted to select a suitable volunteer to whom the ‘client’ is put in touch.
Over the years the requests for help have been many, varied and sometimes challenging and it is very rare indeed that Helpline is unable to assist. Requests for transport outnumber by far other needs and more volunteers are always welcome for this. Volunteers to join the wider band of helpers are also welcomed. Helpline depends entirely on the willingness of unpaid volunteers both to take the requests and, more importantly, to implement them. The service, funded entirely by donations from both individuals and other village organisations, has been operating successfully since 1984.


Stansted Lunch Club

Stansted Lunch Club was founded in 1997 by Alastair Richardson to provide a forum for business in and around Stansted to meet and network.

Meetings are very popular, attracting 60 - 80 attendees on most occasions. There is no membership fee or attendance criteria, simply book in and pay for the meals you wish to attend. The Group is open to all local business people, both active and retired, with a current membership of around 350.
