Covid-19 pandemic support group

From Craig Leyland

A volunteer led group supported by Woodhall Spa and Kirkby on Bain Parish councils has been established to provide support to residents of all ages affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The primary function will be to provide an essential shopping and prescribed medication collection and delivery service to vulnerable and isolated residents in both communities.

We are hopeful that a leaflet will be delivered to all residents by Friday 27th March explaining how the service will work with the service commencing on Monday 30th March.           

The threat of the virus is very real and we will be taking all precautions to protect our residents and volunteers. We will be following NHS guidance to protect all involved. We are also aware that residents using this service will need to feel safe in their homes. To achieve this, residents using the service will know when and by whom deliveries will be made.

We know there are many good Samaritans  out there who are  already doing this for their neighbours. This is fantastic to see. Not everyone is so fortunate and we  want to add to this by hopefully providing a service to residents of all ages who are having difficulty coping with the realities of social isolation and who may not have access to friends and family for help.

Please be patient while this is being set up. More information will be on the leaflet. 

Both Cllr Tom Kemp and I are fully supportive of this initiative. Keep safe, Craig Leyland (Cllr)
