What can you expect now?
Thank you to all the wonderful neighbours who have offered to help with the High Legh Street Champions Project. We have been amazed by the number of people volunteering and we now have a Champion for every street in High Legh:find yours here
We have nearly completed distributing “Introduction Packs” to High Legh Street Champions so over the next few days everyone should get a note through their letterbox from their Street Champion to introduce themselves to you and give you their contact phone no. Please give them enough time to get back home and then give them a ring so they can get to know you – your name(s), phone, email or what’s app contact preferences and if you are currently isolating and / or have urgent needs.
The High Legh Street Champions Co-ordinating Team will be posting updates about local information on www.highlegh.org.uk and Facebook “my High Legh”. ‘Like’ this face book page to get update notifications. Do please continue to monitor government information channels such as TV, radio and websites for Virus related information. For any problems your street champion can not resolve the Co-ordinating Team can be contacted on 07808 207342 and 07510 749847
High Legh Residents – Are you fit, well, able and willing to help your Neighbours?
The virus threatens us all, but some in our community are particularly vulnerable. We have a great team of volunteers who are willing to become “Street Champions” – to provide support to people who need neighbourly assistance in the street where they live or another street nearby. I know that many people have already made offers of help to their neighbours, but we need to know that every street in High Legh has someone who a resident can turn to. No one should be left to face this peril alone.
High Legh Street Champions are all volunteers who are
- in good health
- car drivers
- careful to observe safety rules about maintaining safe distances, hand washing and avoiding surface contact and other government advice
The announcement about Lockdown means that people who are out and about may need to justify their activities to the authorities, so we are working on an ID system for “approved volunteers” who are willing to go shopping or collecting essential medication for their neighbours. ***Click here for more information about volunteering and the lockdown.
We are plugging into other support networks that are being created in Cheshire so that Volunteers can access help, training, advice about good practise and signposts to providers of specialist assistance.
We have set up a whats app group and facebook page to provide Street Champions with regular information and updates.
If you have questions please call 07808207342 , or 07510 749847
Thank you for your support at this very challenging time.
