Get Your Neighbours Phone Numbers and Emails

Rhonda from Hastings Central

Hi there, hope you are all doing ok. What a strange day we are in.
If you are not part of an organised Neighbourhood support it is not too late. Go, knock on a door, keep your distance or watch out for when people are walking past, get each other's contact details so you can stay in touch and be friends and help each other out if need be. Especially for those over 70 or who are vulnerable, maybe don't have car, or with Special Needs.
It might be you can become a co operative.
It might that if you are needing to go to the shop, you check if two or three other need something to limit the number of people going - or if someone becomes unwell, someone else can deliver a meal to their door or someone might have loads of pumpkins or apples or lemons and they are willing to share (obviously, that would need to be under the strictest of hygiene) - or someone might be able to make some pumpkin soup or stewed apples but does not have the freezer space, but someone else does, so you can share the combined efforts.
If someone has a glass house, maybe you can offer to raise other people's seeds if they have them - you will have other cool ideas of how to help too.
My main point is, if you haven't go them, please try to get phone numbers and emails. Form WhatsApp groups etc. We must row this waka together and be there - albeit at a distance for each other.
Stay Well Everyone!
Please do any of these things with the most care possible to stay away from each other - if that makes sense!
