Updates issued by Sue Reece (870618) and Mick Fletcher (870531) on behalf of the parish council:
Free Face Masks
We have mentioned before that a team of volunteers led by Cathy Hancock have been making face masks, initially for workers in the care sector. A number of these masks are available in the village shop for people who feel they might benefit from wearing one on occasions – a maximum of two per person. They are free but Cathy is suggesting a donation which will be used to purchase more materials and any surplus will go to NHS Covid-19 charities.
Bank Holiday – Shop opening hours
We have also mentioned before that Friday is a Bank Holiday (for VE Day ) This means that the shop will be operating reduced opening hours and customers are asked to get their orders in a day early if they can, to be sure of getting what they need.
Look out for scams
Unfortunately, there are those who are taking advantage of the current crisis to try to trick people out of their money with a variety of scams and frauds, most of which involve email or social media.. The Home Office have published a guide to the most common scams that are around at the moment, and we are attaching a copy for information.
