Coronavirus: local support

A group of local residents has come together to offer support to anyone on the island who might need it. We can help by:

  • picking up shopping
  • posting mail
  • getting urgent supplies
  • being someone to talk to on the phone

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need help now or in the future. The coordinators for each street are:

  • Bridge Street and Doyley Road: Piper Griffin
  • North Street: Jen Meakin
  • East, West and Swan Streets: Sian Allen
  • South Street: Simone Sturniolo

Contact Sian Allen in the first instance to ask for or offer help: 48 West Street, 07549 892914,

Beware of fraud

There have been media reports of fraudsters coming door-to-door in the UK.

  • Be careful about accepting support from people you don’t know, especially if they are outside the local community.
  • Don’t hand over cash or debit cards without being certain that you know the identity and address of the person you are dealing with.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for proof of ID, such as driving licence.
