We are living through extraordinary times, with far reaching personal, physical and financial consequences.
With the rules on social distancing and self-isolation it will be difficult to extend the practical help we would like to give to family, neighbours and community.
It will therefore become even more important to ‘watch out’ for each other as much as possible.
If you think a neighbour is struggling or lonely, you could make a phone call and have a chat.
There just might be something you can do, such as leaving basic essentials on the doorstep.
Hopefully this situation will not last as long as the media are speculating, but if ever there was a reason to be neighbourly it is now.
Watch out for each other.
Take care—stay safe—phone a friend—and wash your hands.
