LANHYDROCK PARISH

In Lanhydrock a group has been set up to co-ordinate support to those who need it during the outbreak.

The critical thing is to know that you don’t need to cope alone – just email lanhydrockparishclerk@gmail.com

They will be able to put you in touch with someone in the group who can help. This can range from help with shopping or picking up prescriptions, to support if you’re caring for someone else and need a hand. There are people right here on your doorstep ready to offer help if you need it so please don’t be afraid to ask.

TELEPHONE HOTLINE

Bodmin Town Council has launched a local COVID-19 telephone hotline to help those with no internet access to cope with isolation.

The Hotline is a first response telephone service for people who have a problem associated with being isolated in their homes. This may include things like not being able to get food or medicines or a household emergency such as a boiler breaking down.

More information is on their website.
