In order to support those 'at risk' in the Hemingfords, including those over 70, many of whom have pre-existing health conditions, the majority of whom are now self-isolating, we have divided the Hemingfords into 20 zones.
Each zone has its own Coordinator and Deputy Coordinator managing a number of Volunteers. The team helps us identify the needs of those in their zone as well as fulfilling their needs. When it comes to medicines, we have a dedicated team making trips to minimise the number of individual visitors to GPs' surgeries and Pharmacies.
Know of someone at risk?
If you know of someone in Hemingford Abbots or Hemingford Grey who fits the above criteria that we should be aware of, please let us know, either by phone, email or using the online form (click here). We would rather be told multiple times than not at all!
Want to volunteer?
If you have volunteered and haven't heard from us yet, please be patient. We have logged everyone and are busy fulfilling residents' needs. You are still required and we - or your coordinator - will be in touch. We also need more volunteers, so if you know of anyone, particularly in those areas with fewer volunteers currently, please let us know.
