A message from Elstead Parish Council
With the increasing impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) across the globe and the UK – Elstead Parish Council is acutely aware of the impact that the Government guidelines will have across our community. We are working with Surrey County and Waverley Borough Councils on local initiatives, focusing on the vulnerable.
We urge you to :
- follow the recent government guidelines (see links adjacent)
- if you are able – keep your neighbourly spirit alive (helping the vulnerable), whilst maintaining all government guidelines in mind, to protect yourself and others.
- Bookmark this site – we will update this page
From a volunteering and those need help perspective we are working on:
- sharing information on local businesses that can help – see the list below which will be added to
- asking for your volunteering help, if able, and what you can help with – coming here and on facebook soon
- a way to ask for help from the volunteers
- with the volunteers, how we can coordinate matching volunteers to those needing assistance
- making this information available on leaflets and posters around the village.
- Reviewing our emergency plan (which can only be activated by WBC / SCC in this situation)
Guidance and instructions from the Parish Councils leads authorities will continue to emerge. We will do our upmost to keep you informed. We are very lucky in our community to already have the volunteer group of Help In Elstead. Take care of yourself, your families and neighbours as well as you can. Together we will work through the challenges we face.
