Help in Egerton
The Parish Council has created a list of people who live in Egerton and have volunteered to actively help vulnerable people in the village with simple errands like shopping, collecting prescriptions or just a friendly chat.
To protect yourself and the volunteers, please follow the Government advice on protecting yourself from COVID 19.
Whilst we know all the volunteers on the list we are unable to undertake DBS and identity checks. No volunteer needs to enter your house or ask for any personal information.
It’s Good to Talk.
The most useful thing we can all do is to look out for each other by keeping in regular contact with our neighbours. For those who have to stay at home, a friendly chat on the phone or over the garden fence can make a big difference. Please don’t be shy to offer or accept help.
We are making a difference
“Another of my ladies called this morning - she is likely to need support as she has no family nearby and is concerned about her mental health in the weeks to come. She was also extremely grateful and quite tearful at the goodness in our village 😊”
