Today started off relatively steady until about “Midway”…………we finished up receiving 5 requests for assistance and advice.
I’d like to thank those residents who made food and cash donations to the Branston All Saints Covid-19 Food Bank today, it is very much appreciated and will of course go to supporting those in need within the community.
If anyone would like to make a donation, the following items will help to compliment the existing stock:
Tinned fruit, custard, sugar, flour, brown sauce, mayonnaise, toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Finally, a reminder for volunteers, if anyone is available to take a lady to Lincoln County Hospital at 0900hrs on Monday 27th July and return her home, I would be grateful if you could please call me on 07546 241940
PPE is available if required.
Take care and Stay Safe
Thank you for your continuing support – Andy
Here is the latest from NKDC regarding face coverings:
Face coverings are…
– required from tomorrow in enclosed public spaces including supermarkets, indoor shopping centres, transport hubs, banks and post offices.
– also required when buying takeaway food and drink, although they can be removed in a seating area.
– strongly encouraged in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing may be difficult and where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
– not a replacement for social distancing and regular handwashing.
– largely intended to protect others, not the wearer, against the spread of infection.
You can buy reusable or single-use face coverings, or you may also use a scarf, bandana, religious garment or hand-made cloth covering.
They should fully cover the nose and mouth – the main confirmed sources of transmission of virus – fitting around the side of the face.
There are some circumstances – for health, age or equality reasons – whereby people are not expected to wear face coverings. Please be respectful of such circumstances.
Make sure to…
– only apply, adjust or remove after washing your hands and by touching the straps.
– avoid sharing with others and putting down on any surfaces; cleaning afterwards if you do.
– dispose of carefully into a rubbish bin, or wash at the highest possible temperature.
Be aware that…
– shop or supermarket staff do not have to wear them, but it is recommended to consider where they may be useful.
– you do not need to wear a face covering if you have a legitimate reason not to, including:
for young children under the age of 11.
if you are not able to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability.
if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress.
if you are travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate.
to avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to yourself or others.
to avoid injury, or to escape a risk of harm, and you do not have a face covering with you.
to eat or drink, but only if you need to, or to take medication.
if a police officer or other official requests you remove your face covering.
You can remove when…
asked to do so by shop staff for the purpose of age identification.
speaking with people who rely on lip reading, facial expressions and clear sound. Some may ask you, either verbally or in writing, to remove a covering to help with communication.
If you want to make your own face covering, instructions are widely available online.
