We give thanks for the beautiful and historic church buildings in our villages, and for all those who give of their time to care for them, the church wardens and treasurers; those who clean and arrange flowers; and those who look after the churchyards and gardens. These are places of peace and tranquillity for us all to enjoy any day of the week.

In light of the new guidelines issued by the Government as a community we are setting up a helpline for anyone to use who is either isolating themselves or is concerned for those who are isolated. I am sure those of you who are able will be helping out your neighbours but we felt a more co-ordinated scheme might also be helpful.
We want to currently provide 2 things,a way of making sure people still have daily contact with someone over the phone to chat and see if they are ok and a way of delivering food and medicine as required.
The next issue of Roundabout gives details of the scheme, however the timescale now needs to be brought forward.
Posters will be appearing around the village detailing 2 ways of contacting the helpline, also given below.
or our facebook page - @piltoncoronasupport
To make this successful we need some volunteers who are willing and able to collect food/medicines on other peoples behalf and deliver them to their doorstep. If you are able to help please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add your details to the list.
If anyone finds themselves unable to work and therefore under financial pressure please please let us know and we will arrange for food to be delivered to you.
