Do You Know Someone Who Needs Help?

A number of local people and organisations are busy compiling a list of vulnerable residents in Tanworth who may be in need of help in this time of national crisis.

They would also welcome able-bodied people able to volunteer to provide that help.

There are already several sources of help for those struggling with the practicalities and feeling of isolation that people are and will feel in the coming weeks:

– There is a community facebook page set up for those able to access it called “Tanworth-in-Arden Village Community“.  It offers help and support to residents and people can post to and read about what is going on in our community hour by hour
– The Warwickshire Lad on Broad Lane is offering a takeaway service between 6pm and 8pm with details on their website
Tanworth Church has a number of volunteers to support more vulnerable people that they are aware of in the community
Beaumont Farm is offering meals and groceries for collection or delivery and is updating the Community facebook page regularly

There are also your neighbours who I am sure would be delighted to help if asked.

Despite all of this, if you are still struggling and need help with groceries or prescriptions or any other practical issues or you know of somebody nearby who may, then please contact Jonathan Ashcroft on jonathan.ashcroft@btinternet.com and he will endeavour to help you or put you in touch with someone who can.

A parallel volunteer scheme is being organised by Earlswood And Forshaw Heath Residents Association.

If any residents are entitled to free school lunches for their children they can call Warwickshire County Council Welfare for 6 weeks of support for food on 0800 408 1448.
