We know that some streets may be planning to hold lockdown versions of traditional street parties with neighbours having their own celebrations in their front gardens. This way, people can mark VE day while sticking to social distancing rules which are designed to save lives
This is not dissimilar to Clap for our Carers, which has been seen to build community spirit in a safe way, with people staying in their own gardens, with their own family.
You can find out more about how you can mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day from home by visiting the Royal British Legion website.
Albeit in its early stages, Coronavirus will have a major negative impact on us all and the manner in which we conduct our lives. In particular, senior citizens and the vulnerable will be at the greatest risk.
The Government guidance will see the elderly self-isolating and during this time, they will experience limited contact with the added risk of essential supplies running short.
In order to identify those in need of help, the Residents Association will supply all residents with two visuals for display in a prominent window. The green visual will signal that all is well and the red visual that support is needed.
Clearly, “face to face” conversations are not advised, but if you come across a red visual being displayed, please make every effort to contact the resident and offer them support.
We thank you for your anticipated help.
Looking after the interests of residents of the village of Cheswick Green.
