Socialising Covid-19 style
Kings Langley Good Neighbours
Kings Langley Good Neighbours have been helping people in the village for over 50 years but never in the way that we are at the moment. With hospital and Doctor's appointments cancelled all our energies are devoted to helping with prescription collections and food shopping.
Thanks to the excellent response in Kings Langley to the call for volunteers to step forward, we have thus far been able to fulfil all the requests for help with shopping and with calling at the pharmacy for prescriptions. Some of our volunteers have cheerfully stood in queues in either the High Street or outside Sainsbury’s for many minutes when the demand for service has beenparticularly high. We salute them all!
We are adjusting as various 'lockdown' restrictions are gradually being lifted. As medical appointments are now being booked we hope that soon we will be able to resume our driving activity - watch this space!
Shopping and prescriptions
Kings Langley Good Neighbours is able to help anyone in the village who is self isolating or confined to their homes during the current corona virus crisis. We can collect prescriptions or get some essential shopping for you. We are also looking for more volunteers to help us through the next few weeks. Contact us at KLGNA.ORG or contact 07790668672
Need gardening help now?
Followers of Monty Don & co. will be aware that now Spring has arrived we need to be tidying up our gardens to make a backdrop to the displays of Summer flowers, vegetables and fruit! “I know what needs to be done out there,” said one elderly Kings Langley resident, “but I can’t bend down to do it any more!” We now have a few volunteers prepared to help.
Provided our volunteer can access your garden without coming into your house, we may be able to offer a certain amount of gardening help. Does this service appeal to you, either to join our gardening team, or to alert us to the need of an elderly neighbour or relative? If so, Ring our Helpline on 07790 668 672.
