Almost a month into lockdown, many of us are feeling the pressure in different ways as we adapt to managing with the restrictions placed upon us and do out best to protect our health and that of those around us.
If there is a silver lining to this, it must be the way that communities have come together to help their neighbours and the way that services and support networks have sprung up to try to ensure that the most vulnerable amongst are given assistance and that extremes of hardship are avoided.
Despite the fantastic initiatives carried out by the Covid-19 Mutual Aid community, as well as the work of our emergency services and council, there is still a risk that people are being missed out, and important issues being overlooked.
The council Community Engagement Team are working with your ward councillors to help ensure that accurate and up to date information is available to everyone, and this week we will be circulating a Community Support newsletter across the Queens Park ward.
We would also like to invite you join with us for a St James Area community Zoom video meeting on Wednesday, where you can share your concerns and hear directly from ward councillors, council staff and others about actions taking place and planned.
An agenda will be circulated before the meeting – if you have anything you wpould like to add, please let us know : firstname.lastname@example.org
