COVID-19 COMMUNITY ACTION

Response by parishioners

The response since the Parish Council launched the COVID 19 Community Response 10 days ago has been wonderful. 

So far, 123 households have volunteered to act as responders and, as many households include 2 adults and adult children, the total is nearer 150 responders.  

We have received 28 requests for Support and have been notified that 6 households are self-isolating.   All those requesting Support, have now been linked up with one or two Responder volunteers.  As the situation develops, we will probably have to reduce this to one volunteer.

So, we are well prepared, BUT if you have not yet registered, either to help or for help, click the COVID link to submit your details.  This feeds directly to the Parish Council COVID 19 data base, which allows us to act quickly either way. We are now also asking all new registrants to indicate whether they are in a Vulnerable Group (i.e. over 70 or with underlying medical conditions) so we can either allocate an appropriate non-contact role as a Responder (e.g. phone support) or to prioritise you if you are seeking Support.

What Volunteers are doing

Volunteers are picking up prescriptions, arranging for food collections, or simply keeping in touch by phone and email.  Chatting is good and we all have time for that! But we are following Government advice and need to minimise the possibility of spreading the virus by keeping everyone at home as much as possible.  

So PLEASE, if you request help from a Responder, only do it where absolutely necessary if it will involve the Responder leaving home. 

If you live next to someone who is vulnerable, and you have a telephone number, give them a call and make sure that they are OK.

NEWSLETTERS

A regular newsletter is prepared and sent out to all volunteers and registered parishioners seeking support.  You can see the latest of these in the Attached Document section below.

Food availability and supplies

Your Parish Council has collated a list of local food providers who are willing and able to supply produce to local residents.

Please note that where a delivery service is listed as available, it is subject to availability. Local volunteers are on standby to assist with delivery to anybody registered as vulnerable or in need of assistance.

As a local initiative we can help our local suppliers support us by using them where possible. If receiving a call from any provider, be particularly careful to establish that it’s a genuine call before divulging any payment details.

This will be updated as needed. Please contact [email protected] if you can provide a service that prioritises the most needy in our community.

And of course, if you have not yet registered, either to help or for help, please click the COVID link to submit your details.

Foodbank deposits

If you have any food that you wish to get to the Andover Foodbank, you can leave it at All Saints' Church in behind the glass doors and Bill Mitford, The Church Warden, will keep it safe in the church until  they are collected.

Pharmacy Collections

We are aware that prescription collections are a common task for volunteers and sought feedback in the previous newsletter to assist in developing an improved collection and delivery system.  Increasing numbers of residents are now asking for prescription collections.  Several pharmacies in Andover are now trialling a delivery service by volunteers from Andover direct to vulnerable residents at their homes, and this may be expanded to other pharmacies in the future during the lockdown period.  This is in its early stage and customers will be advised if they are in scope.  We will remain aligned to the trial and provide updates when received.

Clatford Store and Post Office offer a free and convenient service through Stockbridge Pharmacy (01264 810 624) so that prescrptions can be issued by them and collected from the Clatford Store or delivered direct to your home. This is set up by completing the Form attached below and dropping it into Clatford Store or Stockbridge Pharmacy.
