Every day I’m hearing about some of our brilliant community organisations across Garston and Halewood who are pulling together to make sure our vulnerable residents have the support they need during the COVID-19 crisis.
I’m really keen to hear about any groups who are setting up projects to help people across our communities during this difficult time – please e-mail details of any projects to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can then share details of the project on my website and social media.
Belle Vale Ward Councillors Ruth, Helen and Pauline are setting up food collection points and supporting foodbanks and community projects across Belle Vale.
