Update in these strange times
If you need someone to collect essential shopping, a prescription or to drive you to a medical appointment - we have a team of volunteers who are ready to help. Just let Anne know by email or phone 020 8656 6707.
Regular collecting of rubbish is continuing. There is a reduced work force. This means that food and general waste will still be collected on the usual day. Recycling will be collected, hopefully on the scheduled day, but possibly later than usual. Council say to leave the bins in the scheduled place for collection. If they can’t collect recycling on the usual scheduled day, they will try to collect recycling in the following days. If, however, staff levels fall too low, it may wait until the next scheduled collection date.

Clap or bang a pot for the NHS every Thursday 8 pm
It will be a regular thing! If you would like, you can join neighbours every Thursday evening at 8 pm. Just lean out of a window or step outside to clap or bang a pot for a couple of minutes to show our appreciation for the NHS staff working so incredibly hard and putting themselves at risk to look after us.
