We are being asked by residents what they can do to support our community.
It would appear that this virus will be with us for a long period of time.
Here in Prudhoe we have without doubt a fantastic community willing to help.
But as we do this we must also ensure we adhere to the experts advice and be responsive to this as it changes.
Whilst we support those who are elderly, infirm or self isolating we must make sure we do not pass on the virus unintentionally onto them or others by not sanitising correctly.
Please concentrate on your family members, friends & close neighbours first, as approaches to people you do not know could cause issues.
If you know of someone who needs assistance and is not receiving any please contact the NCC / NHS helpline one call –CLICK HERE or emergency services if urgent.
Encourage them to make simple changes such as daily phone calls, pay bills by direct debit etc so they do not worry about making payments, see if it is feasible to use online resources, such as can their medications be ordered online from their GP’s and get these delivered.
A very popular method of supporting people in communities elsewhere in the Country is outlined in this report CLICK HERE
