Following Monday nights announcement that vulnerable people should start shielding again, London Colney Parish Council has re-launched its Good Neighbour Scheme to support those who have been advised to shield.
During the initial lockdown the scheme helped over 85 vulnerable residents and households with essential tasks such as collecting prescriptions and food shopping. London Colney came together with over 50 people volunteering to help with the scheme.
Anyone who is shielding following Monday nights announcement and is in need of assistance with food shopping or collecting prescriptions can call the Good Neighbour Scheme:
Monday – Friday between 10am – 1pm on Tel: 01727 261105.
Outside these hours you will be able to leave a message.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the scheme, please email Antonia Wingate-Martin on email@example.com.
Parish Council Chairman Cllr. Katherine Gardner said ‘We know that the latest lockdown announcement will have caused a lot of worry to some of our vulnerable residents, who do not have family close by to help with essential tasks. It is important that our residents who are shielding are kept safe and supported by their community.”
