An update from the Parish Council on support groups available to Hankerton residents.
There are plenty of support groups in the local area.
The Hankerton Village Whatsapp group is still live and here to help. So if you need help with shopping, picking up prescriptions or any other general issues please feel free to put a request out via the Whatsapp group. If you are not on the group (or do not subscribe to Whatsapp) please pass your request on to Robin Tjolle – firstname.lastname@example.org / Tel 07801 891429 or Geoff Preston email@example.com / Tel 07785 106035 . Geoff is also on hand to help with any computer (PC/Mac) or software problems residents might have as well.
The HEALS group in Malmesbury is also still there to support and also doing a wonderful job. Contact details – 07931 098347 / firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.healsmalmesbury.co.uk/contact-us.html
There is also the NHS Volunteers group who are able to offer support with shopping, medication or other essential supplies as well as check in and chat and some patient transport. Residents can be referred or you can self-refer – call 0808 196 3646 between 8am and 8pm or visit: www.nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk
The Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub remains open Monday to Friday, 9-5pm via the helpline on 0300 003 4576 or e-mail email@example.com. The hub will not be providing food parcels directly, but have a range of support options to ensure that residents get the help they require. This includes signposting to community groups, as well as referring to the NHS volunteers, supporting with priority supermarket slots and working with pharmacies to arrange direct delivery of prescriptions.
