We do continue to encourage every household to be clear who they can turn to as and when needed, especially existing family and neighbours, while the situation persists.

We are aware of various people who have been kindly offering practical extra assistance to households in our community. The current government legislation may mean that some forms of help are not advisable or possible.

From Denise and Mark Held: As the effects of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) impact our daily lives, we felt it important to try and ensure those living in Selside / Whinfell who are deemed high risk and who have to self-isolate have access to help if needed. This is not an official offer in any way, just the two of us trying to make sure there is help if needed and you can contact us via info@selside.net or call direct on 07979 535673

Other people in the community have offered practical help. Either call Mark and Denise, or email info@selside.net and we will try to pass on the request to an appropriate person while also keeping you informed. This website is not an official agency.

Further offers of help will be noted, and there's no need for your name and contact details to appear on this page.

Disclaimer: All we can do from this site is to put people in touch with someone who has offered help. We will endeavour to do so as prudently as we can if you request it


Email info@selside.net to indicate if you would like to be part of the conversation regarding how Selside can reinforce its strong existing networks of families, friends and neighbours. We are encouraging sensible and practical ways of being a support to each other as the coronavirus outbreak continues.


Church Services: Selside Church is open again for Sunday services. See the Selside Church page.
