Patrick Appleby as Parish Council Chairman and I have been discussing this morning how the Parish Council and the Itchen Valley Parish might work together to look after the vulnerable in our community over the next few weeks and months.
In particular, in addition to the initiative that we started a few days ago to encourage local WhatsApp groups, we are working on a card which can be posted through the door of each of our close neighbours with telephone numbers and offers of help of various kinds. It’s intended that this card would be distributed by Itchen Valley News distributors very soon. We hope that all the help which is being offered can be coordinated to avoid duplication of effort.
If you would like to help in any of these areas – could you possibly reply to Beccy Clark (The Itchen Valley Parish administrator) or to your Parish Councillor.
We will be communicating in greater detail shortly.
