Corona Virus response (12/3/2020)

Paul, Brian and I happened to meet in relation to another topic today and they  asked me to put out this briefing.  We also discussed what we would do as a group in response to the developing situation with the Covid 19 (Corona) virus.  I have  already received one call querying what we will do from one of our volunteers.

We are confident that the emergency plan covers pandemics of this type. However of course our reaction might differ from the norm in that we wouldn't seek to assemble a large group of volunteers to activate our emergency plan.  We know who our most vulnerable householders are and would initially seek to contact them by phone to see if we can help in any way.  We will of course look to follow the government guidelines at all times.

In the meantime as this is a situation that might affect the whole town rather than those just living in flood prone areas, please take the time to be aware of what is going on with your neighbours.  Do any of them fall into the 'vulnerable' category?  Can you pass them your telephone number to ring if they need help or pass on our  contact details (tel: 078852 599794  or email

At present it is not envisaged that any action needs to be taken, but should the situation change we will update you.  Of course we would urge you to follow the government advice - please self-isolate for seven days if you have any of the symptoms and take extra care if you have any underlying health conditions.
