Coronavirus - A message from Weedon Bec Parish Council
We do not know what the next few weeks or months will bring, but now is the time to be good neighbours and think about how you will manage if you have to self-isolate or become ill.
Share your phone number with neighbours and local friends, you might be able to help each other if you become ill or must self-isolate
Remember it helps to talk especially on the phone or online if you are stuck at home as many older people might be
Be aware of people living near you who are on their own, can't get out or are elderly. If you have not seen them for a few days or their routine appears to have changed, try and fine some way of checking if they are OK.
Talk to your family. Even if they don't live locally, they will need to know how you are.
Not familiar with online shopping? Many older people aren't but the younger generation use it all the time. Ask a young neighbour or your children or grandchildren to help you set it up and explain how it works. They can talk you through it over the phone.
If you are not online or familiar with Facebook or the village website don't worry. Keep an eye out for other people, give them a wave, have a chat over the phone, no one needs to be without help but:
If you don't have anyone local to contact, you can phone:
Elizabeth Taylor: 07977 134545
Revd Barbara Gallagher: 01327 340585
Cllr Tony Crease: 07787 253009
Revd Jay Phelps: 07436 811514
These contacts live in the village and will try to find someone who can help you.
Attached is a notice which you can put in your window if you need help, please write your telephone number clearly in the space provided. If you are fit and well and see a notice in a window try to find out what help is needed and if necessary, phone one of the above numbers.
We don't want to frighten you but it's better to be prepared now for the possibility of self-isolation or becoming ill.
Keep safe, keep calm and carry on!
Remember when you are helping others please follow Government guidelines on social distancing and do not enter the property
Wash your hands, protect yourself and others
