With the bank holiday weekend nearly upon us, we would like your help in pushing out some key messages to communities.
The first is that our dedicated Community Support service will be available across the bank holiday weekend for anyone that needs urgent help – the opening hours will be 9am-5pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Urgent calls for help won’t go away just because it’s a holiday weekend and thanks to our incredible, willing staff we’re able to keep this crucial service running over the bank holiday.
However, we’re urging our vulnerable and isolated residents to check that they have enough essential supplies now to get them through the weekend, as it might be more difficult for us to access some of these over the bank holiday. We’ll be pushing this message more generally as well – to get in touch with us before running out of supplies to allow sufficient time for help to reach them.
We’d also appreciate your help in encouraging residents to heed the public safety messages ahead of the long weekend – Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives. Our parks and open spaces are open for people to use for their daily exercise if they live locally, while observing social distancing guidelines, but they must not be used for recreational activities like sports, picnics or sunbathing.
