Help from Silchester's Richard Hyde Charity 

The charity helps Senior Citizens of our village who may find themselves needing a little help with transport to the shops, medical appointments or maybe helping with an occasional visit to family which would otherwise be impossible. 

Also If anyone, no matter what age, finds themselves in any sort of financial hardship please do not be too proud or independent to speak to any of the Richard Hyde Trustees.


If you are visiting us on your journey along  St James’ Way (the waymarked modern-day Camino in the South of England),  the stamp is kept in the porch, just inside the LH door. If both doors are open, you may have to look behind it.  Enjoy your walk.
