The Community Council has been represented on a group of volunteers working to build 'community resilience', to help all of us to cope with the Coronavirus outbreak. The group is called Community.
Today the group is ready to go - with the first step aimed at recruiting volunteers who can help with a variety of tasks - aimed at helping those who become ill, or who just need some support during these difficult times.
Below is the group's first public announcement / recruitment drive. If you think you can help in any way (big or small) please register via the online form mentioned below.
We're an amazing community! Let's work together to smash this virus!
Who are we? We are a group of local volunteers, with links to local organisations. We want to help our community to be more resilient during the Coronavirus pandemic.
What is our aim? To pool volunteers & resources from within our community - to support local residents, key workers and local organisations.
We all need to stay-at-home and maintain social distance. But we are also being encouraged to support one another, especially vulnerable neighbours. Already, over a quarter of our neighbours are self-isolating, for their safety and ours. Some are not online. Some have no family nearby. But they are all part of our community.
Our community’s greatest asset is our residents, who can provide local support for local people. By being a more resilient and self-supporting community, we can help each other whilst easing the strain on other organisations.
