The Myrtle Befriending Service
A pub is more to some people than just somewhere to eat or drink, to some it’s a weekly social activity or the chance to escape day to day life. We have a number customers that we and our staff talk to on a weekly basis.
Whilst we are closed we will offer a befriending service for any older customers who are lonely, isolated or just want to chat with a member of our barstaff, this won’t just apply to our older customers, if any of our customers are suffering with loneliness at any age we can call you.
We will call you twice a week for a chat if you like and you aren’t putting us out, most people work from home but we are out of work temporarily and this is our way to help combat loneliness and mental health.
To receive a call, please fill in the contact form
Your name / relatives name (please get their permission)
The day they / you normally visit (so we can make sure you are talking to a member of staff who they / you would normally have a chat with)
Please note as we are not councillors this service is for Myrtle customers only
NHS Volunteer Responders
In addition to our own befriending service, the NHS have launched their volunteer responder programme.
If you, or someone you know, needs a hand with collecting shopping or prescriptions, or just wants someone to talk to, the NHS Volunteer Responders are here to help
Join the thousands of others throughout England who are already receiving support – even if it’s just for a friendly chat.

Voucher Scheme & Crowdfunding
So many people have asked us to set something like this up, we were reluctant to do so but upon reflection it will give us a sense of security, as we currently out of work and will ensure the pub is in the best possible position for when we can open
