COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Edited March 26th 2020

There is currently a lot of information about with regards to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Who should stay at home? How long for? Issues with supermarket shelves being empty, and the list goes on. This has developed quickly and everyone is trying to develop strategies to help those that need it most.

The Parish Council are supporting the Hardingstone Covid-19 Support Group who are helping those that need to self isolate to keep safe and are unable to get daily essentials and medicines.

Whilst it is lovely to get the children out in this nice weather, we are asking that people do not use the play equipment in the Recreation Ground to help prevent the spread of infection. However, do use the Rec for your daily walk but please make sure that you keep 2m from anyone that you do not live with as per the official guidance.

In the meantime we ask everyone to be careful. Whilst there are lots of people out there offering genuine help, there are others who are taking advantage of this time to scam people on the phone, online or on your doorstep. Please make sure that you know the person who is offering to help, or that it is a trusted organisation that you have initiated contact with.

The attached flyer has been circulated to everybody in the village. Please do use this group if you need it.

For more information on the guidance from the government please follow this link There is also a blog page which is updated daily which shows a useful summary here
