Please look out for your friends and neighbours and let them know if you are willing to help them. Residents of Ash are concerned that anyone in our village who is affected may be isolated but we would like to think not forgotten. A number of thoughtful folk have offered assistance to those self –isolating to collect shopping, pick up prescriptions, post a parcel or even just take the dog for a walk. If you are struggling let us know and we will try and connect you to a willing helper.
We will not pass on personal details of anyone who contacts us unless you have given specific consent for us to do so. If you are contacting us on behalf of someone else, please make sure you have their consent before providing any personal details to us.
If you are happy to volunteer, please let us know; a name, contact details and a postcode would be helpful so that we can better connect our neighbours. We will not pass on your personal details without your consent and unless and until there is a person in need.
We urge everyone to take care of their own personal safety. Please don’t hand over cash, data or precious items unless you know and trust the person you are dealing with. In Ash we will do our best to help each other but Ash Villages cannot be responsible for mishaps or missing items.
