Penkhull Coronavirus Action
How to ask for and offer help
If there’s one thing Penkhull is known for, it’s our sense of community.
Never has it been so needed. Lots of people in our village want to help and lots of us will need ongoing help as the lockdown is eased. To bring the two together these are the contacts you may need:
City Council support network for vulnerable residents: ring 0800 561 5610 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday or look at their website - click here (opens a new page) This website is also the place to register if you want to offer help so that people can be put in touch with each other and to get advice on how to stay safe while helping.
Coronavirus Support Group Penkhull is a local group set up to help Penkhull residents needing support. They are co-ordinating activities through Facebook - click here (opens a new page) If you don't do Facebook, please email CVSPenkhullUK@outlook.com. If neither of these is possible ring 07925 469463. This village group is registered with the City Council support network
If you can, stay in touch with your neighbours by phone, especially if they don't have internet access. Looking things up and passing on information may be as helpful as doing the shopping for your neighbour.
Stay in touch however you can - Don’t let isolation become loneliness.
Look out for your friends, family and neighbours, especially if you know they are vulnerable.
Community and compassion are everything
Have a Happy, Safe Halloween!
There are scarier things out there this Halloween, so our advice is to stay safe and stay home.
If you go trick or treating you are risking your exposure further to the virus; attending a party that multiple households are attending, your child putting their hand in a bowl of sweets that other children have put their hands, or even thinking you will just take part with other families that live close by, are all things that should be avoided. Instead of going trick or treating, this year why not:
dress up in the comfort of your own home
read a scary story
watch a scary film
carve a pumpkin
