 ANNOUNCEMENTS 


CORONA VIRUS MEASURES

 

 

essex county council

Coronavirus

Dear resident,

I have never written to anyone on a more important subject. I would ask that you please take a moment to read this message.

We are facing the biggest challenge of our times. Coronavirus is a killer. If we do nothing, 500,000 people across our great country will die.

But that horrendous outcome will not happen, provided we act.

The Government has issued good advice. But not all of us are following it.

This is not good enough. We MUST heed the advice from Government.

It is simple. And it is in our hands.

STAY HOME. SAVE LIVES.

Across Essex this weekend, we have seen people behaving in a way which was very much like going about their usual business.

I will be blunt. This is not acceptable.

We MUST socially distance.

Even though some schools across Essex will stay open, you should ONLY take your children to them, if you have been notified that you are a critical worker AND if you absolutely have NO other option.

The NHS

If the epidemic peaks, as it has in Italy, which has a world-class health system, the NHS will be overwhelmed.

We must not allow the ‘peak’ of the epidemic to outstrip the NHS’s capacity to care.

Every single one of us can ensure that this nightmare scenario does not happen.

In China, and South Korea, the spread of the virus has been kept in check because Governments have acted quickly enough, and people have followed advice. We must follow suit. Our great County of Essex has always risen to the challenges over the decades. This is the greatest one of our times.

Please, follow the advice. Stay Home. Save Lives. #StayHomeSaveLives

 

Cllr David Finch, Leader, Essex County Council

 HELP AVAILABLE FOR ELDERLY / VULNERABLE RESIDENTS

19 March 2020

Dear Resident,

I am writing to advise that in conjunction with the Parish Council, a group of residents have kindly offered their services to deliver food parcels and collect medication from pharmacies for anyone who needs help within the Parish during these worrying times.

We are working with local stores to deliver essential grocery packs, such as bread, milk, tea, toilet roll, tissues, eggs, soup, biscuits etc…..  These packs will cost £20 and £30.  We will also try to cater for food allergies. 

All initial communication will be made via myself, and if you require any assistance, I will filter this through to the volunteer who resides nearer to your home.  We have a total of 30 volunteers covering all three wards, Ramsden Heath, Downham and South Hanningfield.

The volunteers will also be available via telephone, should you wish to contact them directly.  We are currently seeing if we can purchase some I.D for the volunteers, if this is not possible within the time frame, they will be supplied with my business card.

If this is a service you feel you would like to use, please contact me on 07985-430365, as I may be working from home and not from the Parish Office.

I would also advise that Hall & Co, Hemming Stores Too and the Fox & Hounds are currently offering a delivery service.

If the above is not a service you would use, but you need help or assistance of another nature, please do not hesitate to contact me and we will try to help.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Julie Moule

Clerk to the Council

South Hanningfield Parish Council
