Last week we received a list from Swindon Borough Council of 300+ self shielding residents within our parish, that we needed to check in on, to make sure they were OK and had access to their essential supplies. Between some of the Councillors, our band of volunteers and some of our dedicated staff, we have made a huge dent in contacting the residents. We have also agreed to contact those who requested it or that we were unable to reach in a couple of weeks time.
At last night’s Full Council meeting (via Teams on 26th May 2020), Councillors passed on the feedback that the majority of people that were contacted were very grateful for the work that we are doing during the pandemic and really appreciated the call.
Special thanks to our administrator Kim, for the challenging task of organising and updating the call lists, matching the residents up with the appropriate volunteer, managing the SBC deliveries… as well as taking the day to day calls!
