News update, 9th May 2020. What have we been up to?

What have we been up to?
Food Vouchers and food boxes.
We are working our way around the community, delivering fruit baskets, food boxes and food vouchers (redeemable locally) to  those self isolating, the more vulnerable of us, volunteers, and those whose primary income has been reduced due to Covid 19, we aim to have the area fully covered by the middle of next week. Please bare in mind, without knowing the circumstances of each individual household we have only local knowledge to guide us and we may get in wrong. If you are in receipt of a food box delivery with items you do not require, please gift them to the Food Banks in Lochcarron Food Centre and Lochcarron Garage.Please get in touch if you wish to make use of the service, don’t be shy, it’s there to be used. You can get in touch and request further assistance by either telephoning Kristine on  01520 722987, or by email on covid19lcdc@gmail.com.

Volunteer expenses.
Community Volunteers assisting with Covid19 related tasks, such as deliveries and mask making, please get in touch, you are eligible to claim expenses.

Grow your own project
Further supplies of peat free compost have arrived – We’re allocating 2 x 25kg bags per household – get in touch via covid19lcdc@gmail.com.
Lauren and Ryan at the Rockvilla have kindly offered to “host” a plant exchange in their car park and we hope to have this up and running in the next couple of weeks (weather permitting) . We will be in touch with details then, in the meantime look out any spare plants, seeds, or pots you may have.

Covid19 Co-ordinator post
Elaine Porritt and Vicky Stonebridge  have kindly stepped up to the mark, Vicky has been busy updating developments through social media and took time to design our Covid19 leaflet. Elaine has been busy delivering food packages to over 320 homes, this has provided her with a good basic understanding of where the need lies and how that information, together with input from the Community Network, can help form our Covid19 chat line service which will be launched as soon as the bulk of food deliveries have been made.Thanks to everyone for pulling together and helping this to happen.
Keep in touch with us covid19lcdc@gmail.com.
