We are all aware of the increasing seriousness of the coronavirus situation. We, as a village community need to support each other through the weeks and months ahead and ensure that practical help is available to those who need it, especially the very elderly and vulnerable amongst us.
A few village residents attended a meeting today hosted by Rev Nikki Chatterton, who is setting up and coordinating a support group covering the villages in her Parish. This group will provide a means for the villages to share experiences and best practice, as well as providing a mechanism for cross-village support if needed.
Each village is also being asked to put in place a structure for ongoing support that best suits its size and its residents. Councillor Liz Hirst and Michele Gill, who attended the meeting today, are therefore hosting a meeting on Wednesday 18th March at 7pm in the Reading Room to discuss how this might work in Avon Dassett. This will be an opportunity to hear what is currently proposed, share your views, and to offer your help if you are in a position to do so. We apologise for the short notice, but it is in our community’s interest that we get something up and running as soon as possible.
Please share this with your neighbours and friends in the village. If you are unable to attend but would like to offer your help going forward, details of how to do this will be provided shortly after the meeting has taken place.
