COVID-19 VILLAGE NETWORK
It’s clear from the government's analysis that the situation in England will deteriorate significantly in the next few weeks and is likely to plateau through April, May and June. While central and local government will deal with the issues at higher levels, we need to help ourselves and others around us. To this end, we have established a Village Network, that is to say, a network of volunteers to assist Great Rollright residents during the coming months.
Help is now available for picking up medicines, shopping or other essentials. Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it. Don’t be shy. The Village Network has been established to help you.
Should you require help of any kind, contact
This is Marilina Roxburgh’s number and she will put a volunteer in touch with you.
The over 70s are being encouraged to self-isolate and we should take this very seriously as Covid-19 presents a real danger and the months ahead will be challenging.
