Since March 2020 our local communities have been providing vital support for the vulnerable, isolated and those in need. The response has been incredible, from the initial "all hands to the pumps" to the continued and ongoing support that community groups of volunteers have maintained throughout the remainder of 2020.
As 2021 has seen us experiencing tighter restrictions once again we wanted to remind you of the amazing work and support still being provided for your communities.
