A number of local support groups have been set up to help keep the communities connected – particularly for the elderly, people with compromised immune systems (the vulnerable) and for families with very young children.
and they are on facebook and now here on our website. These groups have been set up to emergency deliveries which may have only just become necessary or to be voice on the ‘phone to have a chat if you’re feeling down.
