Below is some information which residents of St Leonards and wider Exeter might find helpful.
The Magdalen Rd Village shops have instigated a home delivery service for those who wish to ring in with their requirements, the delivery service is free. 1100 leaflets have been distributed to houses in the area and, since lockdown, 250 emails have been sent out to the community. The SLNA is offering a 'help' service for anyone who needs help in this difficult time. We may not be able to provide the help ourselves but we will hopefully find someone who can.
Email, or ring us if you, or anyone you know, would like help. firstname.lastname@example.org
SEE THE SERVICE WE PROVIDE.
Please get in touch to let me know what is happening on your street / in your community with regards to supporting others, this will help us to build a picture and identify any gaps. Perhaps you have carried out a leaflet drop offering support to your neighbours or set up a Whatsapp group? Maybe your street is already well connected?
I have had individuals contact me offering help. If you require any support please get in touch.
If you would like some ideas for online activities please visit my Facebook page. Perhaps you would just like someone to talk to, again please get in touch.
Many thanks and look after yourselves.
