I am self-isolating, where can I find help?
Syresham Parish Council are aware that during the current COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic many residents may need to self-isolate and as a result may find they are unable to obtain necessary groceries and medicines. If you do not have anyone who can assist you, please contact the Syresham Parish Clerk, Samantha Hosking. The Parish Council are coordinating local volunteers who are willing to help their neighbours during this difficult time and we will be able to find someone to help you.
Also, if you are on your own and feeling lonely or worried, neighbours have already volunteered to call people for a chat, so just contact the Parish Council and we can link you up with someone.
If you are on Facebook, the Syresham Villagers Facebook page is also a good place to find neighbours who would be willing to help.
You can also ask for help and advice by contacting Northamptonshire County Council's Coronavirus dedicated support line - 0300 126 1000 (option 5)
