HELP FOR THOSE THAT NEED IT

This is a busy and difficult time for us all.  Our priorities must reflect the need to look after the health and wellbeing of each other and do what we can to avoid spreading the virus.

We have set up a page in the “Members Only” section of the website to help those who are obliged to self-isolate and to enable those who are able and willing to help in some way to register their details and how they can help.  The members only section avoids individuals disclosing personal contact information on an open website. Here is the direct link.

If you have not visited the “Members Only” section before, here’s what you have to do.

Click on the  button in the top right corner of the home page and follow the instructions.

If you are not in one of the “at-risk” categories and your circumstances permit and you feel able, please sign up to help others. Offers of support will be much appreciated by everyone.
