As yet, it’s unclear to what extent Coronavirus will affect our community. Some of us may catch it, others not. For some, the effects are said to be similar to seasonal flu, however the effects of this virus might be greater to those of us who are elderly or have underlying health issues.
We must all be mindful of NHS advice and the recommendation to self-isolate if we show these symptoms or have been in contact with someone who shows symptoms (see the NHS link below).
We are fortunate in that Hadlow Down is a supportive community and as a village many of us tend to know our neighbours even if they are several fields away. During this time, especially as people start to self-isolate, it is important that as neighbours we maintain phone contact. If you know of a neighbour who lives alone or neighbours who have little support in the local area, please take the time to make contact and to offer your support making sure that you are mindful of NHS guidance regarding visiting those that are vulnerable.If you need help or you can help then the following are happy to receive a call and to co-ordinate activities:-
