When the COVID19 outbreak started to take hold, Chinnor Parish Council activated their emergency plan.
Part of this plan is to setup “Street Friends” which are there to help if people need support, a few small items of shopping, prescription collections and a friendly voice on the end of the phone.
Despite best efforts, sign up was slow and nearly 40 street friends were required to fill the remaining streets that did not have an allocated call for help.
Harris Consultancy in conjunction with Chinnor Hub, created “call for help” artwork and used its marketing powers on Facebook to call for assistance.
We received a tremendous response and were able to fill the majority of remaining availability – a representative from the council said “Chinnor Parish community has been amazing today. The above list has shrunk considerably. Thank you residents”
We were glad to be of assistance and support the community on our doorstep.
