The coronavirus will effect our way of life for a number of months. At the moment, the council is responsible for co-ordinating emergency plans and the public health response. There will be regular updates on the latest advice and there will be a coordinated response from education, children & adult services, health and emergency services. As your local councillors we have been contacted by local people wishing to support neighbours. The Council/NHS/AgeUK have provided the advice below in the picture below about how to support our local community best – including the setting up of a dedicated helpline for those who may need more support (020 7346 6800 then option 6).
As Councillors we will be regularly updating the twitter feed and you can contact us individually. Though please appreciate we are extremely busy currently supporting infrastructure set up to combat the virus..
There are lots of other local groups looking to coordinate broader support in our area. They can be found on the Coronavirus web site above under the section on mutual support.
Best wishes and keep safe
Mary, Marcia and Ben
