A Message from the Parish Council
As a result of the ever-changing situation we need to be alert to new advice coming from Government. There are now stringent rules in place for SELF-ISOLATION and for SOCIAL DISTANCING. Unless absolutely necessary, apart from daily exercise, essential food shopping and care of the more vulnerable etc we should all be at home.
During the Coronavirus outbreak we hope to support each other as a community bearing in mind, ALWAYS, the advice from Government about self-isolation and social distancing. We can all play our part in hastening this disease on its way by adhering to these rules.
There are also many groups in Abberley who may be able to answer to your own particular needs.
If there are any organisations who have formed any social media groups that people may join then please let Carole Hirst, our Parish Clerk, know "> and she will be able to upload that information to the Parish website and also to our own Facebook page.
It may be becoming more difficult for some Parishioners to easily access the services they need. And for that reason we have asked for volunteers to provide some assistance where able.
It is extremely important that both volunteer and parishioner observe all the guidelines about social distancing when performing any service and that each is comfortable with what is being asked of them.
Please don’t hesitate to call any of the following people if you are having difficulty in picking up prescriptions, need some essential food and supplies, or simply just to hear a friendly voice on the end of a phone.
