Local Community Support
East Hunsbury covid -19 Mutual Aid - a group of over 200 volunteers (and growing all of the time), set up to help anybody who is self-isolating in East Hunsbury. The group are encouraging volunteers to look after their own streets first - keeping the focus small will enable us to help each other over a longer period.
The Help Register
So that we are able to target the support that our Seniors Club members need, the Parish Council have set up The Help Register. Initially the aim is to match Seniors Club members to another member nearby and help combat the loneliness that self isolating brings.
We have had lots of enquiries from local people who want to help too, and so we are opening The Help Register to the wider community - if you could spare some time and are able to help please let us know.
You will need to register your details by email on our dedicated email address –
Please tell us your:
Name, Email address, Telephone number and Home address
and indicate whether you can
- Help to shop; or are
- Happy to chat on the phone
Where we can we will link people in together. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee that a link will be made – we do not know who may be self-isolating or away.
