Coronavirus – helping the socially isolated

St Margaret’s rector Wil North is working closely with St Andrews and the ‘West Maidstone Support Group’ on behalf of the West Maidstone Churches to provide co-ordinated and joined up voluntary support for people who are socially isolated/vulnerable at this difficult time.

The plans include:

  1. Setting up a system of telephone buddies: different members of the church taking responsibility to regularly phone a given group of people to check that they are ok, have a chat and see if they need anything.
  2. A team who are prepared to do shopping and collect prescriptions

The church will be doing leaflet drops with all of the information offering support and posters will be put up on our notice boards and on the website as soon as we receive them.

Please take care in these difficult times, stick to the government guidelines, keep washing your hands and check on your neighbours.
