Message from Chairman John Kneller

Message from Chairman John Kneller

Published: 17 Apr 20

As we now enter another 3 weeks of “lockdown” we wanted to send out a HUGE thank you to all of the marvellous volunteers across our communities in our Parish including the village shops. It is also good to acknowledge that we have increased the volunteer numbers to well over 75, up 50% from 3 weeks ago. We have now delivered 2 leaflet drops to all households across the Parish, that’s close to 3000 activities alone plus all of the shopping, prescriptions, papers, and other items to help people who need support at this time. The second leaflet has also initiated contacts from people who are in need of some assistance so that demonstrates that it was the right thing to do, those requests are now being actioned or signposted to the most appropriate support agencies. We have been in regular contact with Cornwall Council, Volunteer Cornwall and Age UK all of whom are highly complimentary of what you are all achieving as they are not receiving requests for assistance from our area because YOU have all got it covered, well done everybody and thanks again. We really do appreciate everybody's efforts, as do those who we are supporting, a quote from Mr Richardson today when I delivered his shopping. ” My wife and I really want to thank all the wonderful volunteers for their support, like so many other people we are shielding for 3 months and we wouldn’t know what to do without your help, it is a real lifeline to have people who we can rely on to help us out at this difficult time.” THANK YOU VERY MUCH, WE ARE SO LUCKY TO LIVE IN REAL COMMUNITIES! Sorry couldn;t resist a sneaky photo of you Mr Chairman on one of your daily deliveries. Glad to see you are using some PPE! Read More...
