PriorsHelp email group for COVID-19

We have set up a community email 'helpline' called PriorsHelp to ask for and to offer support during the COVID-19 threat period, particulary to help people who are self-isolating and/or social-distancing. We sent invitations to all current addresses on the village email list, if you didn't receive an invitation you can ask to join this group by sending an email to . Once you have confirmed your email address you can email offers or requests for support to this list using and your email will go to all members; any email replies will go only to the original sender. Please do not use the group for social chit-chat or other noise, this could drown out a genuine need, please remember this could be someone's lifeline during a period of self-isolation or social-distancing

There's a WhatsApp group. To join the WhatsApp group as a helper please ask Emma by email with your telephone number. To ask for help please email Emma or Candy and they will put the request out to the group.
