On Sunday, 15 March, members of the Community Council held an urgent meeting with other interested parties to discuss our response to the Coronavirus crisis.
Clearly, there is a limit to what a community council can do, but we want to do what we can.
As a first step, we decided to publish postcards to help people look after their neighbours if they're self-isolating. This, of course, was inspired by Becky Wass, who launched this initiative in her home town of Falmouth. You can read her story here.
We will print our Radyr and Morganstown postcards as quickly as we can - and keep you updated via this website and local social media.
We will let you know where you can pick up a supply of our cards, to distribute to your neighbours. We want to keep this very local - so we will encourage people to take no more than around 20 cards - and post them to people who live nearby. In this way, those who are self-isolating can be confident that they will be dealing with people they can trust.
A short while later, we will set up a system to enable those who haven't received a card to let us know. We can then try to find volunteers in your area.
In the meantime, the postcard is as shown below (click on the picture to see a full-size image).
If you want to crack on with this, you can right-click the following links to download the card, which you can print out and cut with scissors:
We hope this little postcard will help put people in touch - and help ensure that anyone who has to self-isolate can get the help they need.
Good luck everyone - and many thanks to those who volunteer!
NB: Collecting prescriptions for someone else? Here's how.
