Dear Dockenfield Resident,

We find ourselves living in some extraordinary times. At this time, with the elderly and those with underlying health conditions self-isolating and all our lives changed with much reduced social contact, local community support groups have an important part to play in the fabric of society. In Dockenfield we are fortunate to have two established community support networks: the Emergency Warden Contact Network and the Parish Friends. Together these community support networks can provide a variety of emotional, pastoral as well as practical (e.g. running shopping errands for essential supplies or walking the dog…) support for those in need, especially those needing to self-isolate. See below for a contacts list which can also be found on the village website (http://www.dockenfieldpc.org.uk/) and in a special edition of the DNL to be published shortly.

 Lucy and Robin at the Bluebell pub have launched a takeaway food and drink menu. They have started a collection service but for those self-isolating should be able to deliver. Please do use this service, it will be a huge boost to the community and will help keep the Bluebell (01252 792801 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) operating.

Revd Jane Walker will be in the Church of the Good Shepherd every day except Tuesday at 9am and 6pm (same at St Mary’s Frensham at 8.15am and 5pm). Jane will ring the bell as the Church of England has advised to give people a sign of hope and continuity. Jane will be praying for every resident in Dockenfield at those times and will be available with safe distancing for anyone who would like to come to talk with her. She is not allowed to visit anyone self-isolating for obvious reasons but if you would like to talk is only to happy to give phone support on 01252 792137.

 

We also need more volunteers, especially healthy younger volunteers, who will be willing to help out on more practical support tasks, especially for those who need to self-isolate. Please contact Paul Wood, Dockenfield Parish Council on This email address is being protected from spambots.

 We all need to do our bit to keep the community safe and healthy - enhanced hygiene, social distancing, staying at home if you have symptoms, self-isolating if you are in a vulnerable group.
