As you are aware, the spread of Covid-19 is now impacting our daily lives. Our ‘vulnerable and over 70’s’ residents are being asked to self-isolate and everyone else has been asked to “shield” them and delay the spread of the disease by staying home and not going out unless it’s essential.
Please keep up to date with the rapidly changing advice from these reliable sources:
NHS – For health advice regarding Covid-19, symptoms, self-isolating etc.
Public Health England – What you should be doing to help stop the spread of Covid-19
Staffordshire County Council – Information about how you can help, changes to SCC services.
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council – Council tax, business support, bin collections etc.
Gov.uk – The latest Covid-19 guidance for households, health professionals etc.
If you are using Checkley Parish green spaces please adhere to the Governments social distancing guide.
Please be aware that Checkley Parish Council has closed all childrens play areas…SEE NOTICE
SCAMS – Please keep alert for scams, if you’re unsure check it and report it via Friends Against Scams
We are living in exceptional times where different ways of working are required.
Clinically Extremely Vulnerable
If you have recently received a letter from the NHS or been contacted by your GP and advised you are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable then you must register for the Governments Coronavirus Support.
I WOULD LIKE TO BE A SUPPORT NETWORK COMMUNITY CHAMPION!
We are asking for volunteers to support our ‘vulnerable and over 70s’ residents by becoming street/area ‘community contacts’. Obviously, the number of homes you might be able to support will be entirely up to you and your own commitments.
The Support Network can help anybody self-isolating by:
- Collect/deliver weekly food orders from local suppliers for households who are self-isolating and have no support.
- Prescription collection.
- Dog walking, pet care (emergency vet visits etc).
- Be a street co-ordinator ensuring that everyone in their area is aware of what help is available and ensuring people are being looked after.
- Be available for a chat (over the phone or social media).
- Help organise all this
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07840 456397.
I WOULD LIKE SUPPORT FROM A SUPPORT NETWORK COMMUNITY CHAMPION!
If you are self-isolating as a result of Covid-19 and require support with:
- Collecting of grocery supplies.
- Prescription collection.
- Walking your dog.
- Feeling anxious or lonely and need to talk to somebody
Please send an email to email@example.com or phone 07840 456397/07793 613333. You can also call any one of the numbers listed below or any of your eleven Parish Councillors.
This may separate us but it doesn’t have to divide us. You are not alone.
By volunteering and giving us your contact details you are giving us your GDPR consent.
The Parish Council is NOT DBS checking anyone and is not vouching for anyone’s character. (Sad that we have to say that) we are relying on everyone’s integrity and community spirit to pull together.
Any exchanging of monies for goods is at the discretion of both parties and not the Council.
