In response to the Covid-19 / Coronavirus situation, The Northern Fells Group intends to offer the following support to residents who are self- isolating or “socially distancing” -
 Picking up shopping
 Posting mail
 Collecting prescriptions or medicines
 Delivering locally cooked take-out meals
 Dog walking
 Support and information

We are working with local shops and businesses to help ensure they can remain providing a service for the area.

Most importantly we are developing a phone call or email “buddy scheme”. This will ensure that individuals either living alone, carers or people with health conditions will be contacted on a regular basis for a friendly chat to check they are OK

Call or text Simon Braithwaite our Lend a Hand Coordinator on 016974 77196 or your Village Agent Philippa Groves 016974 78555 or email if you or a relative need our help! ALSO - IF YOU HAVE TIME AND WANT TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP - PLEASE - DO GET IN TOUCH!
