Thanks for your offers of support. The response has been far better than I could have hoped for. At the moment as far as I am aware, villagers are already pulling together brilliantly to look after each other.
The Ffolkes, while closed as a pub, is now planning to open as a temporary shop offering essential items at cost price, which can be ordered and paid for over the phone, so just need collecting.
Several people have suggested setting up a Whatsapp group so that if anyone needs anything urgently they can contact us and we can contact each other should we need help.
I am well aware that some of the most vulnerable are the least likely to have smartphones or computers, but I am equally aware that at the moment they only have my contact details. Also, we never know when we may be affected. This way would allow anyone of the group to respond to calls for help.
I have never used Whatsapp before, but I have set up a group called Hillington Support Group. The link is below if you wish to join.
