Loneliness

Are you feeling lonely, alone or isolated - or are you worried about someone you know?

One in five people in the UK say they experience feelings of loneliness and during the coronavirus pandemic many more of us have felt anxious and isolated.

 

A number of groups across Bentley Pauncefoot, Tardebigge and Webheath would like to offer support when needed.  They can offer a friendly chat or arrange to put you in touch with others who can help.  Once restrictions ease they plan to arrange social events to encourage friendships.

 

Bentley Pauncefoot Parish Council is pleased to support these groups by helping to raise awareness of this important initiative.

 

Please contact Gail Teague on 01527 541991  or   gail.teague@icloud.com   for more information.

Coronavirus

 

In the face of the current crisis caused by the Coronavirus pandemic the Bentley Pauncefoot Parish Council will do everything that it can to support our residents and their families. Living in a rural location, as we do, the issue of distancing ourselves from those who might carry the infection might be less of a concern, however isolation, loneliness and the inability to obtain provisions could be a real problem, especially for the elderly members of our community.

Parish Councillor Gail Teague has kindly offered to be the prime contact point should any of our residents need help. Her contact details are as follows:

Gail Teague email gail.teague@icloud.com  phone 01527 541991.

Gail will be able to call upon the support of other members of the Parish Council whose contact details are also listed on this website.

It is clear from the media that there will be no easy or quick solution to this problem, and we may suffer the effects for many months to come. If you need help or are aware of someone in our community who may be struggling please contact Gail.
