Mr B A Boughey
Meeting 18 March 2020
It would be useful for the Parish Council to know who, in the vulnerable group (over 70 years old for example), is isolating at home so that they can compile a list. Please phone one of your councillors (Malcolm Calhaem for Fradswell on 01889 270297) or (Brian Boughey for Milwich on 01889 502757) to give your details. Similarly if anybody not needing to isolate is willing to help out those vulnerable groups, with for example shopping or just a phone call now and then, please also give them your details.
