The Oakley Support Network Steering Group is comprised of representatives from the Parish Council, Oakley Community Association and St Leonard’s Church. We are working hard to establish a safe and effective system that will support households in Oakley, Deane, Malshanger and Wootton during the Coronavirus outbreak. Within the next week or so each household will receive a leaflet detailing how they can access help and support; especially if people need to self isolate. The leaflet will bear the logos of the Church, Parish Council and Oakley Community Association. In this way you know it is a legitimate communication – it is not ‘junk mail’. In the coming days, a website will be launched that will provide a mechanism for ongoing communication; we will also be sending out an electronic volunteer application form shortly https://www.oakley-village.com/volunteer
We have created a Virgin Giving Page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charities/oakleywithwootton so if you would like to support us then we would be pleased to receive donations which will be used to fund the costs of the network infrastructure and its operation. We will be providing regular updates from this time on.
In the meantime, please leave a message on 01256 268700 and we will do our best to respond to urgent needs.
Link magazine will not be published in April 2020, but will re-launch with the August issue.
Please be aware that, due to the corona virus emergency, many local events are now cancelled. If not marked as such in the calendar, please check in advance.
