If you are fit and well and able to help others, then please contact one of us and join the volunteer group.
If you have an underlying health condition and you want us to know please tell one of the co-ordinators. All information remains confidential within the volunteer co-ordinators group.
For the foreseeable future the outreach Post Office will continue to be open on a Tuesday from 9.15 to 11.15am. This is also an opportunity to ‘socially distance’ over a cup of coffee and as the weather improves, we’ll hold it outside!
If you are a parent and work for the NHS or in another essential role and need help with childcare contact us, we may be able to help as some of us are professionally trained and DBS checked.
By being a strong and supportive community, helping each other, we can stay safe and sane!
