Please Keep Your Distance!

When your on the public footpaths please leave TWO metres between you and anyone else. Don't spread your family across the footpath. Have a thought for other users.

Some of the behaviour yesterday was just plain ignorant and stupid!!!

PLEASE NOTE

( Unlikely to be the only one cancelled this year)

FELIXSTOWE HELPING HANDS - all ready to help...

The role of this group is to provide a place where the Felixstowe community can offer help to those self-isolating, or where those needing such help can let us know. Everyone taking part needs to adhere to Government safety guidelines. Organiser is Felixstowe Councillor Darren Aitchison 07479 556736

Please remember this is a local response to the needs of the community during a difficult time. Obviously your first point of contact should always be your usual network of family, friends and neighbours but this group is a safety net for those who need help in Felixstowe, the Trimleys, Kirton, Walton and Falkenham

AS FACEBOOK USERS** please contact Felixstowe Helping Hands through this site:

Felixstowe Helping Hands

• REQUESTERS should advise via Facebook of their need and general location eg, Old Felixstowe, Town Centre, Seafront, Morrisons area etc
• Flag any urgent requests by changing the background colour of your post (we will try to monitor all requests but it might prove challenging)

• VOLUNTEERS will then respond with offers of help
• The REQUESTER can choose who to ask for help and then private message them to arrange details (try to choose someone you know of personally and/or who lives in your general location)
• Please remove the post once someone has responded to your need (to avoid duplication and/or very long threads of conversation)

** Non-facebook users will be able to phone the coordinator on the mobile number on the card and we will match REQUESTERS and VOLUNTEERS

We may evolve the above as we learn to become more efficient - Please bear with us we are just volunteers ourselves and we are just trying to help people in our community.

The Surviving Winter Appeal Saves Lives!

In Suffolk last year, 310 vulnerable people died from causes attributed to cold and poor living conditions, and it is estimated that 43,330 households in Suffolk live in fuel poverty. The Surviving Winter Campaign is led by the Suffolk Community Foundation with the East Anglian Daily Times, Citizens Advice Bureau and other partner charities and businesses. Last year, the Suffolk Surviving Winter Campaign heated over 700 homes of older vulnerable people.

This year’s campaign will be launched in early November.  Together we will achieve even greater success if we encourage people in the Trimleys and surrounding area, who need help, to contact their local  Citizens Advice Bureau for assistance with their fuel bills. Also, for those who can afford it, the  donation of all or part of their Winter Fuel Payment to help another. To donate to the campaign visit www.suffolkcf.org.uk or call 01473 602602. Anyone can make a donation if they would like to.

 “Nextdoor is a private social network where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world”.  There is already a trimley St Mary group for you to join.

It is free and safe for people to join up and find out what is going on locally.
