There’s also friendly, helpful community support and advice offered by the NextDoor blog here: https://blog.nextdoor.co.uk/2020/03/13/how-can-you-use-nextdoor-to-help-your-neighbours-in-a-time-of-need/
In particular, if you’re able to lend a hand to neighbours who are social distancing or self isolating, this simple idea from Becky Vass in Cornwall is proving popular:
In light of the circumstances, we’ve taken guidance from our colleagues at the Council and will postpone our forthcoming monthly public meeting on Thursday 19th March.
That said, we remain available to contact as usual at firstname.lastname@example.org and through our Facebook page. And remember, you can find lots of information and contacts for local services on the website www.kelvindale.org
During the coming weeks/months our locally elected councillors and other ancillary services will be very busy – so please support them however you can.
From all of us at Kelvindale Community Council, our very best.
