Community Response to COVID-19

The Parish Council met on Friday to discuss their action plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how we as a community can come together to look after those most vulnerable in our Parishes.

Over the next week, every home in Ashburnham and Penhurst will receive a leaflet with details on who can be contacted locally if you need help – whether this is with weekly shopping or getting prescriptions delivered. You can also volunteer information regarding your circumstances, if you wish, so that we ensure some one checks up on you regularly (this can be if you are showing symptoms or just social distancing as a precaution).

We have already had many local people volunteering to help in different ways and there will be more information to follow on how to register your interest in helping out. Look out for more details in the Parish Magazine and regular updates on here.
