What's happening in Weston Turville?
Please look out for your neighbours.
It is likely that some of our community will be self isolating over the coming weeks. Let's help each other to get through this period of anxiety, uncertainty and potential loneliness.
Please think about the needs of your neighbours, especially the elderly and vulnerable or those in isolation. Give them a call or knock on their door to check they are ok, make sure they have food and other essential items and offer to help if you can. Give them your phone number so they can ask for help if they need it.
Below is a link to a cut out flyer that you may find useful to offer help to a neighbour you are concerned about.
If you are self isolating and do not have help available from anyone else, a community support group has been set up. Please contact Mandi Simons on 01296 613958 if you require assistance.

Watch out for Coronavirus scams
According to OWL (Online Watch Link), fraudsters are exploiting the spread of coronavirus to facilitate various types of fraud. Please remember:
- Watch out for scam messages: Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails
- Never respond to unsolicited messages and calls that ask for your personal or financial details.
- Exercise the same caution that you normally would and don’t allow anyone unfamiliar into your property, even if they are offering help.
