WhatsApp Coronavirus information service
The UK Government has launched a GOV.UK Coronavirus Information service on WhatsApp. The service will also allow the government to send messages to all opted-in users. To use the free Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp, add 07860 064422 in your phone contacts and message the word ‘hi’ in a WhatsApp message.

In these uncertain times we would ask that residents are mindful of their elderly neighbours or those who are self-isolating and may need help with everyday chores.
