Please look out for each other during these times of uncertainty! We are hoping that each street will pull together to look after the vulnerable and to support anyone having to completely isolate themselves. This can be through practical help such as shopping, but also through befriending and keeping in touch via phone or just shouting through windows! People who aren't able to go out may be very lonely; single parents may crave adult conversation; generally everyone appreciates it if they can have a friendly chat every so often!

Thank you to all the many people who are helping with this, let's keep this going and build a closer community, not forgetting all those who haven't got Facebook or WhatsApp or even email or web access..
