COVID Regulation Updates 

South Molton Central Park
Some residents have asked why the Central Park in South Molton has not been re-opened following the recent relaxation of lockdown rules where the Government has stated that parks should re-open.
Although named Central Park, it is in fact an open space area that has many play/outdoor gym equipment items situated within. Government advice is clear that although parks can re-open, play parks/grounds/outdoor gyms must remain closed to avoid the spread of the coronavirus. The Town Council is therefore complying with the regulations and Central Park will remain closed until the government advises otherwise.

How to Help

On the 15th March we asked for people who were DBS checked to come forward to act as a Volunteer Co-ordinator to help us put the infrastructure of this community response to Covid-19 in to place.

We were overwhelmed with the response, attitude and organisational skills of 150+ people who came forward. They have been working hard to leaflet areas around town, providing their contact details so that the vulnerable people at home, who have no support system in place (so no family or friends who can nip out and do the shopping for instance) know that there are people out there willing to help them.

What we now need are people who would like to volunteer to undertake some of the tasks that arise from people phoning asking for some help.

As a volunteer you will become part of a Facebook group for your area of town. https://www.facebook.com/onesouthmolton/

If you are not on Facebook or you do not wish to use Facebook you can still get involved by contacting us at https://www.onesouthmolton.org/ and giving us your name, area you live in, contact e-mail and either a mobile or a landline number. Also if you are self isolating but other wise fit and well please let us know.
