All of us are presently affected by the impact covid-19 is having on our society causing major disruption.
Community councils have taken advice from our local authority and are following their guidelines.
We understand that this is a frightening and worrying time for people and we would like to help in any way we can.
We already know that the local shops are offering a delivery service for people who are unable for whatever reason to get out themselves; local churches are identifying the vulnerable and elderly in their congregations as they are best placed to do so and as far as possible helping where they can.
Regarding medical services it is best to contact your GP or NHS 24 on freephone 111 for advice – please do not just turn up at your GP surgery or local hospital without telephoning first.
If anyone would like help with anything, advice or have concerns regarding elderly or vulnerable neighbours / relatives -we are happy to be contacted in the first instance.
We can then ask volunteers to help in different areas or can direct you to someone who is in a position to help. If there are any queries or requests, we are unable to deal with directly we will do our very best to find someone who can.
We are aware that a lot of people who may be most in need will not use social media or indeed the internet so please pass these details on to anyone you feel might find them useful.
If you would like to contact us the details for our clerks are below.
