ALL Activities SUSPENDED. During Corona Outbreak Crisis But Work Goes ON.

COVID 19

NET’s main priority has always been and always will be the the safety of it’s clients, volunteers and staff. We still consider it impossible to open any of our

venues for regular events while conforming to government / local council guidelines. Our events always attract large numbers of clients from all corners of the

large area we cover. Many clients require transportation by volunteers who we are not happy asking to undertake this task at the moment. Current rules state

a max of 6 can attend events, which is un-viable for us to operate and how do you decide which six of our 2500 clients do you ask to attend?

Our volunteers and staff continue to stay in contact with our clients, making over 1000 telephone contact calls per day. In July we started to deliver cream tea’s to all clients who were regular luncheon club members. We provided and individually delivered over 1000 packs of sandwiches, sausage rolls, pork pies and salad plus scones, cream and jam. This proved to be a great success appreciated by all recipients and we expanded this to other groups as the month progressed. As the social distancing rules came into play, volunteers were able to spend some time with clients reducing the feeling of isolation which had caused concerns for some months. The Cream Tea deliveries continued in September. Unfortunately reduced contact has been re introduced but cream tea deliveries continue. As the British weather starts to chill down a bit during the autumn months NET is introducing “ Heat’ N Eat “ to replace the cream tea’s. Something that can be warmed up to take the chill away. These will be individually delivered in a similar manner to the cream tea’s.
Please continue to stay safe and obey government guidelines Stay alert We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must: Stay at home as much as possible Limit contact with other people Keep your distance from people (2 metres apart where possible) Wash your hands regularly Wear Face Covering if you go on Public Transport and in Shops & Supermarkets We will get back to some sort of normality one day and we will have the big party we promised. The volunteers and staff really appreciate all the letters and telephone messages of thanks.
