A group of concerned residents have got together with the aim of co-ordinating community help for those in need. A database has now been created for every street in Downton. Many people have already been sharing the 'Hello' cards offering help and assistance or just a friendly phone call - and the group is hoping to put this information into the database, so that should anyone find themselves needing help they can be directed to willing volunteers. The plan is to enlist more than one volunteer in each area, as volunteers may need to self isolate themselves. There is also a need to ensure that no volunteer should put themself at unnecessary risk.
If you are willing to help a particular area - or could offer specific help as a 'floating volunteer' - then please contact one of the coordinators listed below with your details and thoughts about how you can help. Ideas and suggestions are welcome. Lists of volunteers will not be published and any details will only be shared as necessary, with the agreement of the volunteer concerned.
