COVID-19 – Updated Information For Residents

Hassocks Parish Council are endeavouring to provide updated information for residents to help meet the challenge of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.  Please find details of local and other organisations that are known to be offering help and support, or access to useful information.  (This list will be kept under review)

Hassocks & Keymer Volunteers – COVID-19

You should have received a leaflet through your door with the following information:

A Facebook Page has been set up with volunteers within the community of Hassocks and Keymer to assist people during the Covid-19 pandemic. The idea is to provide a community service to vulnerable people (those who have compulsory isolation due to health or age restrictions) so they can request assistance to source staple items that they are unable to source themselves.

These items will be provided by the community where they are able, if they have a surplus supply (as we are all aware stocks are limited)

For those who are unable to access Facebook there is a community contact number 01273 040111. These requests will be forwarded to the Facebook group.
