There are loads of self help groups over 7000, struggling to understand why Ron is having a hard time ..I did ask if he wanted help but never replied..

https://covidmutualaid.org/local-groups/

We are part of this and looking after a couple of hundred dwellings in our parish..
Sorry P - I didn’t intend to ignore or indeed be so rude as not to reply - I hadn’t realised it was an offer due to the geography of it all!

There are now some offers coming in from the likes of the parish council etc but I don’t like to prevail at this stage.
On the plus side we do have a neighbour who will get us bread milk and eggs :thumbsup:

Just a thought.
What if we start a new thread of the members on here that may feel they may need a little support in the coming weeks months could post where they are based.
A lot on here i am sure would be willing to help,i work in retail so can get access to basic provisions all the time with restrictions ,but there is going to be more than me that would help.
Its a win win ,vunerable get provisions,others get to go out do the right thing and drive their zeds

There are many groups in action around the UK...over 7,000 one route is to connect Forum members with their respective groups...

If folks pm their post code I can advise the relevant group and as I act as our co-ordinator for our local group I can press request buttons in other groups :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This finally got real in our family.

Covid 19 took my father in law this morning. He didn't stand a chance. May he rest in peace.

He was a man, that if you ever met him, would always made you feel good about yourself.
A humble and generous man, that many looked up to.

He will join my late mother in law. He will be happy again.

Sadly, some of the public think they are immune and carry on regardless, in not social distancing, nor understanding the implications. The guidelines are there for ALL of us.

We haven't even seen the spike in the country, so goodness only knows where we are headed.

Funeral arrangements are quite grim as it is only limited to a small number. Could be interesting with such a large family! If he was to look down, on his funeral day, he'd think people didn't care about him, given the numbers would be so few.

In his last days, there were huge and understandable visiting restrictions at the hospital, but what was evident, was the dwindling supply of PPE for the visitor and NHS staff.

Just shocking that NHS staff, are being left vulnerable.

Covid 19 will teach us a lot. From ways of working to how ill prepared our health service have been run down.

This also applies to the rest of the world.

Stay safe people.
