The Parish Council are preparing a plan to provide a village-wide response to Covid-19 in Palgrave. This will be part of the Village Emergency Plan.
To deal with the immediate emergency of the Coronavirus, our objective is to put in place structures to support the community over the coming months.
The plan has 4 main elements:
1.The Parish Council will co-ordinate responses via the clerk and Cllr Cousins-Clarke with the help of other community bodies.
2. We are establishing neighbourhood 'cocoon' groups across the village. These will be composed of up to 25 households. The idea is that neighbours can support each other making sure that nobody is left isolated and without support, food or medical care. Communication within the cocoons can be done by telephone, internet of just shouting over the fence!
We must look after each other.
3. We will cluster the cocoons into areas - the village will be divided into a number of administrative areas. Each will have an area co-ordinator. They will link to the co-ordination team (clerk and a.n.others still to be nominated) and will allow us to pass information up and down the structure ensuring support is directed where it is needed.
4. If necessary, we will establish a capability to supply food and medical supplies through the cocoon / area co-ordinators as it is found to be necessary.
We will work with the Church and other community groups to ensure that there is social and spiritual support for residents. Using telephones and social media will help provide support to the community.
We need you to complete the survey as a matter or urgency within the link below so we can coordinate the responses.
We need you to volunteer as an area co-ordinator or Neighbourhood cocoon organiser.
We need you to volunteer as a possible deliverer of food / medical supplies.
Take care of yourself and our neighbours.
