We hope everybody is keeping safe and well, here are some community news updates.
A local resident, Kath Anderson has organised a team to manufacture protective face masks which are washable and therefore reusable, please see the attached photo for a sample design. These are being supplied to a local care home but are now also available for the general public. From today they can be obtained from Holcombe Brook Post Office, for a suggested minimum donation of £2 for NHS charities. If you cannot get to the Post Office please either email [email protected] or call Greenmount Helpers to arrange to have a delivery.
A request from the Porch Boxes organisation, Greenmount Old School has a collection box for donations which sadly can’t be used during lockdown. Because a lot of donations to Porch Boxes usually come through schools & churches which are now closed stocks are sadly falling at a time when need is rising. To alleviate this problem it has been decided that boxes will be put outside people’s houses where possible, there is one located outside of 31 Greenheys Crescent and other nearby locations. Please read the attached document from Porch Boxes for full information, thank you.
A reminder that the brown bins should be emptied as normal this week as the council have overcome the staffing problem which led to some bins not being emptied two weeks ago.
Best wishes, stay safe everyone
