We now have a Village Agent in place, Patricia Harris. Village Agents are a county-wide scheme, promoted by Hampshire County Council and Age Concern and sponsored in Thruxton by your Parish Council.
Patricia is available at any time to offer social or other assistance to anyone in the Parish - she will put you in touch with whichever Agency she feels will be able to help solve your problem. She can be contacted by phone on (01264)-771493 or by email on <email@example.com
