Humshaugh COVID-19 Response – 21/3/2020
Key organisations in Humshaugh are organising a collective response to help our community cope with the impact of the COVID-19 virus.
Humshaugh Village Shop will be the “hub” for providing goods and access to information on wider services. There will be a volunteer-run delivery service of food, including ready-meals, newspapers and other essentials. The Shop website (http://www.humshaughshop.co.uk/) will provide information on other services.
If you are in a vulnerable group and/or self-isolating, particularly if you live alone, you can arrange for deliveries or ask for help with any other practical issues by calling:
If we cannot help we will do our utmost to find someone who can.
In line with Government and other advice group activities in the Village Hall are cancelled until further notice. St Peter’s Church Services have also had to stop; however, local clergy are offering personal support and St Peter’s will remain open for private prayer.
