NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH NETWORK
Dear Little Stanion We recognise that this is a challenging period for us all and even more so for vulnerable people. As Neighbourhood Watch we believe it is very important that we all take care and protect ourselves as a priority and where possible we safely carry on the great work of supporting and staying connected with our communities. In England, between 5th November - 2nd December, national restrictions mean that:
- You should only leave home for food, medical reasons, exercise, education, or work
- You must work from home if you can
- You should avoid travel unless essential
- Schools and essential shops will remain open
- Our website signposts where you can get accurate advice and support with your emotional wellbeing.
- Sign up for the FREE Festival Of Discovery running online on 20th and 21st November for lively discussions on hot topics, entertainment, things to make and do, a chance to recharge your wellbeing, and real-life community stories from across the UK.
- set up a Calling Tree to support those who are not connected via social media
- join forces with a Covid-19 Mutual Aid group

- connect with your neighbours with this Kindness Card
- If you are, or you know someone who is, facing loneliness have a look at our Loneliness Toolkit
