Hungerford Self-Isolation Network – 7 April 2020 update

On 16 March 2020, Geordie Taylor set up the Hungerford Self-isolation Network (see his letter below). By the end of the month, over 200 volunteers had come forward andthewse  are currently providing support services of one kind or another for over 130 households.

‘The system seems to be working well,’ Geordie said on 30 March. ‘For our purposes the town’s been divided into 10 precincts – each one has a group of local volunteers and a team leader and they look after isolation households in their area. Please get in touch if you need our services, if you want to volunteer or if you want to help in any other way. If people continue to send me their details we’ll be able to use their help when we need it.’

‘The response from the people of Hungerford has been amazing,’ the Mayor Helen Simpson said. ‘Knowing the town and its people as I do, I’m not surprised. On behalf of the Town Council, I’d like to thank Geordie for getting this off the ground so quickly and effectively. The Town Council is happy to encourage and support these kind of initiatives but these only work if someone can step forward and run them. I’m delighted this has happened on this occasion.’
