New WhatsApp Group

In order to reduce the load for Simon and others in terms of coordinating COVID-19 issues/support for the village, via the village website, I am suggesting use of a WhatsApp group to make this less of a burden on a few and provide a more reactive and immediate approach. THIS IS NOT A SOCIAL GROUP, its purpose is to enable those who need help or assistance to advise quickly and those able to help to respond immediately. It should also limit duplication.

I will act as contact point for those who do not have or are unable to use WhatApp, posting on their behalf.

If you want to be part of the group, please contact me for advice at
