About the Sparsholt Community Support Group
To address the impact of the Coronavirus epidemic on our community, representatives of the Shop and Post Office, the Church and the Parish Council have come together to form the Sparsholt Community Support Group (Group).
The Group’s Purpose is threefold:
- Understand the National risks and issues
- Understand the problems of our residents
- Establish and Coordinate local support
The Parish Council will support the Group, in the same way that it supported the establishment of our Community Shop and Post Office. They have provided two representatives and agreed funding towards the cost of setting up the Group but are not permitted to run it.
At the moment the Group is planning to address: -
|Communication||To help those that have a problem we need to know who they are and how we can communicate with them. We have setup an email address of email@example.com for non-urgent situations. Anyone with an Urgent issue should call us on - 07595 967259.|
|This Website||TheParish Council has offered to give us access to part of their website, to post advice and information that we receive.|
|Identification||We’re establishing a “people at risk register” and we would encourage those over 65, particularly if living alone, anyone with an underlying health issue such as asthma, chest complaints heart disease or an impaired immune system to join the At-Risk register by emailing their contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Support||If you are self-isolating or unwell and cannot arrange your shopping &/or deliveries via the Internet please contact us by email to email@example.com or call the village shop on 01962 – 776998 or visit the Shop website where you can download an order form if you are self-isolating.|
AT THIS CHALLENGING TIME, WHAT YOU DO FOR SPARSHOLT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
To make any of this happen we need you to give us some of your time.
Volunteers are needed to respond to email and phone contacts and to help to build the At-Risk register. Our community Shop and Post Office needs help to keep going and to make home deliveries to those who are self-isolating or unwell.
Some of the roles can be done from your home while others may need you to move around the village.
To volunteer, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org Or, call us on - 07595 967259
