  • Julie from our Social Prescribing Team has shared the latest Beacon Box. Attached is the latest monthly version which is focusing on Mental Health and is full of activities that you or residents could do.
  • Free Adult Safeguarding Training is available in June. More details in the attached email
  • Community Champions – The opportunity to become a Bury Community Champion is still open, please see more information below and share with your groups and networks. The more we have the better for our town and residents.

COVID-19 and the various measures taken to manage the virus and protect us continue to impact everyone in Bury. You may have heard about the increasing covid infection rates in Bolton and elsewhere and you may have been asked questions in your community about this.

It is now more important than ever to ensure that Bury residents stay up to date with the latest guidance and advice, which aims to keep everyone as safe as possible, so Bury Council is recruiting some Covid-19 Community Champions. The COVID-19 Community Champion network is made up of volunteers from all areas of the borough who will help residents to stay up to date with the latest information about Covid-19. 

What does a Community Champion do?

Bury Public Health will keep COVID-19 Community Champions informed of the latest advice and guidance, hold exclusive webinars and Q&A sessions and enable you to ask the Public Health Team questions. This will help your family, friends and other community members to make sense of the latest facts and guidance about the virus.

What we ask our COVID-19 Community Champions to do

We would like them to share this reliable and up to date COVID-19 information with anyone in their network- family, friends and community.  By receiving trustworthy and clear information regularly, Bury residents will be able to make more informed choices, as we ensure the safety of the public and manage the pandemic.

Please note that being a COVID- 19 Community Champion is not an enforcement or regulatory role.

We would like you to consider becoming a Community Champion or asking people you know to join the network.

Cuppa and a Chat

Dear All,

You will be aware that six weeks ago we opened up a ‘Cuppa and a Chat’ café to help those in the community to begin to meet people after such a long time in lockdown. The afternoon sessions in the Old School have proved successful and will continue to run from 2pm till 4pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday until further notice.

Note: The morning sessions in the Church have been undersubscribed, therefore we will no longer be running these.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the volunteers for making theses sessions enjoyable and giving people the chance to meet in a safe and friendly environment. If you have not yet been for a cuppa, then please feel free to turn up on any of the days and times mentioned above and please use the back door of the Old School and don’t forget your face covering.

Kind regards,

Julie Southworth

Old School Yard Sale

Dear All,

Every Saturday starting 1st May 2021 Greenmount Old School will be having a yard sale in the morning and early afternoon, selling Bric a Brac, some clothes, books, Heart Art Crafts and much more. You will be able to loan or buy a jigsaw too from our very popular Jigsaw Library.

Come along and support the Old School but please don’t bring any unwanted items as our donation collection service is still out of operation.

Note: It will be cancelled in wet weather.

Julie Southworth
