Coronavirus in the Community

March 13th, 2020

As you are all aware, the impact of the Coronavirus is escalating.

The Parish Council is concerned that there may be some members of our community who may have ‘fallen through the net’. They may not be known to the authorities, they may not have a support network of family or friends, they may not have internet access.

If you are aware that a neighbour is struggling to cope please be a good neighbour and check if they need any help.

Thank you
