Helions Bumpstead Paris Council is working to keep all residents of the village as safe as possible during the current Coronavirus outbreak. To this end, the Village Hall has been closed until further notice, no services will be held at St Andrew's church, and the Three Horseshoes remains closed. We are setting up a volunteer support group within the village to help anyone who needs it.

Thank you so much to everyone who has volunteered to provide help and support to neighbours during this current pandemic.

We have received offers of help from 28 volunteers, and residents of Helions will be able to call upon them to assist with shopping, collecting prescriptions, dog walking or just for a chat. In addition, the Church and the Mutual Support Network have already made contact with a large number of residents offering support. What a fantastic village we live in!

If you are having to self-isolate due to illness or if you or a member of your household is designated as vulnerable due to age or an underlying health condition, and you need help or support with shopping or anything else then please do not hesitate to contact one of the following:

Sue Kehr 730819
Jane Catchesides 730422
Charlotte Purdie 730323

who will then be able to arrange assistance from one of the volunteers living closest to you.

Please stay safe and healthy everyone.
