The Parish Council, DFR and The Pandy Inn are continuing to work together during the ongoing present Covid-19 crisis circulating news and information, and serving as contact points to support the community.
Six months in to the crisis and with the winter flu season just around the corner here’s a few reminders:
If you answer yes to any of these questions call NHS helpline on 111
If you are unwell and don’t know what to do call the NHS 111 helpline – do not go to your surgery unless instructed to do so.
The community’s support for neighbours and friends in vulnerable groups has worked well. However, as restrictions relaxed over the summer those connections may benefit need revisiting for the coming winter season. Support for basic services will need to continue for some time to come, especially if movement restrictions are enhanced during the coming months. Please be particularly aware of the spectre of loneliness among those who continue to self isolate. Dorstone’s Corona-Buddy system has worked well to help, assisting with:Checking vulnerable neighbours have sufficient food and, where necessary, delivering supplies to your front door.
Here are a few recommendations to help you stay well prepared for the months ahead.
