DOZENS of volunteers have signed up for a group offering support for villagers self-isolating and needs help with everyday tasks such as shopping, picking up prescriptions and posting letters.

A team of more than 60 people have joined a COVID-19 support group set up by Holmes Chapel Parish Council and Holmes Chapel Partnership.

About 20 volunteers delivered more than 2,000 leaflets to every home in the village publicising the new group.

If you need help or know anyone who needs assistance you can ring 01477 533934 or 07484 9804899 and leave a message.

Someone will call you back, and you will be matched up with a member of the team of volunteers, who are all villagers, have been vetted and will wear Holmes Chapel Parish Council badges to identify themselves.

Letters of consent have been agreed with the pharmacy in the village to enable volunteers to collect prescriptions on residents’ behalf.

If you would like to act as a volunteer visit the Holmes Chapel Partnership website.

Louise at Evolve Family Law was thanked for funding the leaflets and South Cheshire Print for producing them.
