Stogursey Parish Council update re Coronavirus situation
As you can imagine, there are many concerns, anxieties and worries about the situation likely to be confronting us over the next few months!
The Parish Council has been approached by numerous people asking what they are going to do to assist parishioners through this growing crisis?
At this time I think that it is important for Stogursey Parish to do what it does best, and look after each other.
The advice given today, Monday 16th March, is that we are being asked to reduce contact with others.
We all know people who are vulnerable, be that age related, or as a result of health problems. Please, you all know someone that is likely to need help, let them know that they can rely on you for help.
Information from central and local government is not to visit places frequented by other groups – “social distancing”. This will restrict the ability for people to meet each other. Don’t let your neighbours feel isolated or lonely. Phone them, call around and at a distance (1.5m) find out whether they are ok.
The situation is at this time, fluid to say the least. I get the impression that it will become even more difficult by the end of the week.
Chair, Stogursey Parish Council
