Coronavirus community support Liphook?
- K (25th Mar 2020 08:57:50)

Is there such a group set up in Liphook?
I am in Quarantine for 3 months unable to leave the house even for Groceries and more importantly Medication. I'm at high risk of serious COVID-19 illness and received communication on Monday to adhere to the 3 month quarantine as I'm Vulnerable.

Thank you

We are working on this at the moment please go to I am currently setting up a section on the website devoted to information for the village.

I should be able to publish it today, We are asking for volunteers to get in touch and for those in need to get in touch using separate forms. We will then match people based on their location.

I think this is where the newly launched NHS Volunteers will be able to help?

I have just registered and others can do so here:

It looks as through all volunteers will have a criminal records check. Anyone who holds a recent DBS check (last 12 months) may be especially welcomed.

The website has a section called COVID-19 SUPPORT, (in red at the top right of the page) my aim will be to centralise information. I will pass on any information to this thread on talkback as well. I am putting this together on behalf of the Parish council. I am working from home which also has its challenges, but I will do my best.

Hi K, the Lloyds pharmacy were able to deliver my medication, I just gave them a call a couple of days before I needed it, they were really helpful.

Because Iv'e had a Liver transplant and have to take immunosuppresants for the rest of my life, I have been getting texts from the NHS saying I have to stay indoors along with a whole host of restrictions!
I received a letter today because I am in the most vulnerable group with lots more information.
Im trying to pick up a prescription, and admit I did pop over to try to collect it. They were not letting anyone in. I explained my predicament and asked if they could deliver my prescription. I was told to phone.
I have been phoning non stop for hours but to no avail.
I'm not sure what to do as I do not want to risk going out again.

I would encourage anyone , especially those with a recent DBS to volunteer for goodSAM .
They are organising practical support for the most vulnerable, transport for those who have recovered and need discharge from hospital, transport of items between NHS sites and a friendly ear service for those not coping well with the isolation
Something for everyone!

What plans does BLPC have to offer help and support within the village? Today’s Liphook Herald (Gabrielle where are you when we need you?) has lots of examples of what local parishes are offering by way of support to the vulnerable and other risk groups, Liphook’s plans are noticeable by their absence. The website says
“COVID-19 News and Support - Helping you with up to date information, if you need help please contact us” but nothing else…

Why has the parish office shut for the duration? It should be possible for BLPC’s chairman and clerk and other parish councillors who are not in isolation as in a vulnerable group onn a rota basis to be there in normal working hours - answering phones, emails etc. and co-ordinating local help schemes, even if the doors are shut to the public

In times of crises natural leaders come to the fore. Regarding Bramshott and Liphook Parish Council, if they have shut up shop for the duration, do we really need them?

BL Parish council is open for calls but these will be diverted to a mobile number. Staff are working on rota basis. Both council website and LMC website are updated with current information. Councillors, where able to, have volunteered themselves.

There are several Face book pages too for those on FB. Corona Virus Community Support Hampshire is the one I am signed up to and offer help to people nearby.
