CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

HELP FOR HELMDON RESIDENTS

Some residents in Helmdon will feel alone during this time whether due to self-isolation or because they fall into a higher risk category. Helmdon Parish Council would like to help during this time.

IN NEED OF HELP?

We have volunteer help available. You may need assistance such as help with groceries, collecting medicines or other errands such as walking your dog, a chat on the phone or just help with your bins. If you need help, or you know of anyone else who needs help, please contact the Parish Clerk

STAY SAFE

Our volunteers cannot help with services that should be done by professionals or care services and are not able to go into your home. They also cannot take cash out using a card or provide childcare. Please be wary of people calling at the door who you are not expecting, or people offering to sell you groceries, provide virus testing or asking for entrance into your house. If you have any concerns about a visitor please contact the Parish Clerk.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We are looking for volunteers from the village who are willing and able to offer support and assistance by obtaining and delivering various necessities, collecting prescriptions, "just to chat" phone calls, walking dogs etc. To register your interest, please send your contact details to the Parish Clerk.
