As the country remains in lockdown, and we are only allowed to leave home for very limited purposes, we are very lucky here in High Legh to have such a caring and supportive community. With the beautiful spring weather, we have some lovely quiet places where some of us at least can walk or cycle for exercise. And the Thursday night clapping for the NHS workers can bring a great sense of community back to streets which are deserted for most of the day.
For those of us who are over 70, have underlying health conditions or needing to self isolate, it is a particularly trying time. But with all the technology now available, no one needs to be completely isolated.
Every street has a Champion allocated, who is there to help you if you need it. Find your Street Champion here or call the central team on 07808 207342 or 07510 749847 if you need any support to get you through this lockdown.
Stay at home – Protect the NHS – Save lives

Thank you to all the contributors - life has been quite active here during lockdown. It is great to find out about what people have been and are doing. We also have information in this issue about plans and expectations of various groups as we work out how we can deal with the new realities and discover how to do what we can do.
Best wishes to all our advertisers - recent events have made us ever more aware of the importance of local services. And finally thank you to Newsletter distributors who make it possible for residents to have a free copy delivered to their homes. As someone said to me this morning, electronic copies are fine, but it is nice to have a printed copy that you can sit and read .
We hope that the Autumn edition will go out in October - when, perhaps we can restore the diary in the centre pages - because maybe by then we will have activities to go out to and enjoy. Advertisers if you would like to be in the autumn edition, charges are listed here as are details of how you can get in touch.
