CORONAVIRUS HOME SUPPORT SERVICES
Support available to residents of Newhall Parish
Wrenbury Together and Audlem & District Community Action have provided the following details:
We are providing support to local residents who may need help, are self-isolated or live alone and whose family, friends or neighbours are unable to help. For those needing support it is important that you, as well as distant family and friends, know you are getting it from people you know or trust.
Our services cover the areas of Wrenbury and its surrounding parishes and Audlem and its surrounding parishes. We are working together to cover the Newhall Parish area with the support of the Parish Council.
Our volunteers are all registered and checked and we are working closely with Cheshire East Council and Cheshire Community & Voluntary Services
We can help you with:
Post Office and posting letters
A friendly telephone chat
We want to support our local businesses and ensure their long term future within our community. We will be using local providers where we can, some of whom are offering home delivery services including hot meals.
If you don’t have anyone close by to help and are in need of assistance or are a carer who needs further support at this time, then please do contact:
07802 429025 / 01270 780002
covering Wrenbury and surrounding areas including Wrenbury Stores & Post Office and GP Prescriptions
Audlem & District Community Action
Covering Audlem and surrounding areas including Audlem Coop, Boots Chemist, Post Office, Butchers and Lord Combermere Market
Thank you to all the volunteers who have already come forward to help us and our local communities– we have not needed to use them all yet – but we will be ready as and when services are required.
Thank you and please do get in touch if we can help
