I have just had 2 cards put through my letter box- 1 red, 1green and a leaflet explaining that if I am fine, keep the green one up in my window. If I have a problem or am unwell display the red one.
Each street/area in the village has a contact person and will get help for those needing it. .
Isn’t it good to know that people care?

That should be adopted everywhere. What a splendid idea

❤️ That’s a smart idea!

I’ve managed to get my old mum linked up to her Coop who will do phone order deliveries and also someone running an online group with whom I can communicate if mum needs anything else. Such kind folk!

It's good to hear that help is starting to come through for the vulnerable.

I don’t think of myself as “vulnerable” - this is for anybody and everybody.
