Neighbour Network is working well

Derwenthorpe Neighbour Support Network is up and running – Contact us on 0771 287 2343 or

There was a lovely response to the leaflet circulated a few weeks ago with many neighbours volunteering their help. Between us we have been able to respond to all the requests of support so far: Neighbours have grocery shopped, collected medicines and posted letters and parcels. We have had telephone conversations and, at a safe distance, had a person to person chat. We have also been able to sign post people to other sources of help where needed.

Lockdown and self isolation can be lonely and stressful. As the situation may go on for a lot longer it was felt that offering a range of opportunities to link up with neighbours in our community may be helpful. It may be for a chat, information or to share interests, all of which can be done by telephone or online.

There are plans for a Derwenthorpe WhatsApp group. Want to be a part of that?   Please send your details or make contact.
