AGG Good Neighbours   facebook.com/groups/AGGGoodNeighbours

 

AGG Good Neighbours is an offshoot of the ever-popular local Facebook group, Ascot Gossip Girls, and was set up almost a month ago, in response to the threat of Covid-19.  It was quickly realised that we would have many people living in this area who, having been told they needed to stay at home, might feel isolated, terrified and lonely.  It was also understood that the official channels would be highly unlikely to be able to put anything in place very quickly, so it would be up to us to help our neighbours where we could.

The idea of the group is very simple:

  • join here: facebook.com/groups/AGGGoodNeighbours
  • check the spreadsheet of roads to see which ones near you are still available
  • let the group Admin know which road(s) you are adopting so you can be added
  • drop flyers through all of your neighbour’s doors, offering assistance where needed
  • help your neighbours to stay home & stay safe

And that’s it.  The aim is to cover the whole of Ascot & The Sunnings, but with everyone staying local to home to avoid any unnecessary journeys.  We are almost there, but would love more members to join, volunteer and make an immediate, direct difference to many local people’s lives.  Although you will only be expected to help your neighbours, the group is also there for support and back-up, should it be needed.

If you are currently self-isolating due to age or health and would like help with shopping, medicine collections etc,  then please get in touch and we will be able to help – 07785 774711.
