Wendy Biggs and I have considered village residents in the vulnerable group who may be isolated. Some have family in the village or locally and I have called many whom I have identified. One proudly announced that he has 5 people offering to look after him.
A list of people who have offered to help is continually being updated and people have offered to monitor various areas of the village. Don't be afraid to telephone or knock and speak to people you may know to be alone; they may be feeling lonely. See the guidance for volunteers. People have offered to help in many ways including dog walking, collecting medical prescriptions, breakdowns and maintenance. More »
If you wish to drop a note through a letterbox please note your full name, address and contact details. I spoke to one elderly person today who did not recognise who his note had come from - and there are scammers around.
• If you think you have been infected with Covid19 or someone you live with becomes infected stop volunteering immediately let a coordinator know and follow the current medical and government guidance .
• Don't be afraid to say no if you are not available or the request inappropriate.

• It is not advisable to enter someone's home, under any circumstances.
If you are helping with shopping, keep transactions small and essential, do not take anyone's bank card, ensure you hand over a receipt, and photograph the receipt for your own records. Place goods on the doorstep to avoid hand-to-hand delivery. » Less

New Coronavirus support line launched
A new support line has been launched to support the most vulnerable members of our community.
The new support line - which can be reached on 0300 126 1000 (Option 5) - allows those who cannot leave their homes under current restrictions and those who have nobody to call upon for help, to request support in getting access to food, prescriptions and other vital services that they require.

There are a large number of people across Northamptonshire who are currently in isolation for various reasons. These include individuals displaying symptoms of Coronavirus and those with existing health conditions, those who are pregnant or those aged 70 and above.
The Customer Service Centre at Northamptonshire County Council will be managing the helpline, ensuring that each call is appropriately triaged so that individuals receive the care and support that is appropriate to their needs.
The Community Resilience Service will co-ordinate requests for help in conjunction with the District and Borough Councils, mapping those requests by area and linking them up with local community groups, volunteers and voluntary organisations who have pledged their support
Those requiring help are asked to call the support line on the following number:
