Dear Neighbour,

We know these are worrying times and many of us will need to isolate ourselves at some point because of Coronavirus. It may be difficult for you to go out and get the things you need – or you may know people in this position and want to help them. Being in isolation may also be very lonely. East Hagbourne is a community full of caring neighbours who would like to offer assistance if you need it.

We can:
* Help collect items, for example prescriptions or shopping
* Give you a call if you are feeling alone
* Take out your bins
* Post mail

If you need any help, or if you would like to volunteer to help others, please email us at easthagbournecovid19@gmail.com We will do our best to help.

If it is urgent, or you don’t have email, please text or call us on 07568 395228 or the clerk on 07891 551851.

For food deliveries, we note that the village community shop is offering home deliveries to vulnerable parishioners – please call 01235 811815 (between 9.00 and 12.00) or email easthagbourneshop@btopenworld.com

This initiative is in addition to helping your immediate neighbours directly as many of you are probably doing already.

Additional support and guidance is being offered by AGE Concern Oxfordshire https://www.ageuk.org.uk/oxfordshire/about-us/news/coronavirus/ or call 01865 411288 which will connect straight to an answerphone where you can leave your name and contact number for a callback.

If you are feeling unwell, please follow NHS guidance https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ Call NHS 111 or go online to NHS Direct.

This community initiative and leaflet is supported by East Hagbourne Parish Council – if you wish to confirm it is genuine please call the clerk, Laura Lloyd on 07891 551851.
