Langton Way Association; COVID-19/Coronavirus lockdown support

We’ve seen a tremendous, spontaneous response to the current crisis. Many neighbours have offered help with shopping, collecting medicines or other support to older or vulnerable neighbours who are housebound or socially isolating at home.

As the lockdown tightens and we are instructed to stay at home, remember that shopping for, and support to, vulnerable people are legitimate reasons to go out. 

Please contact the following volunteers directly if anyone you know needs help; especially if they don’t use email or the Langton Way Residents Facebook group.
