Message from Glenys Kyle, group coordinator:
‘The Horley CV liaison group is now established, with Di and David Marriott, Alison Tite and Glenys Kyle as members. Together we have lines of communication with all the main groupings in the village, thanks to many others here who together make this village what it is. We will shortly be distributing a simple information leaflet throughout the village, so please look out for it. It contains contact details for the group for all in Horley to use if they need to get in touch: ie email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01295 738334 or 07872 930030.
Meanwhile, rest assured that we have mapped all homes and all known family units in Horley, and worked with others to identify those known to be vulnerable. We are doing our best to navigate our way around everyone’s data protection and information rights, hoping to strike the right balance, and certainly we will not be disclosing anyone’s personal data to anyone, without specific permission. We already have a small band of willing volunteers to help those needing help, and of course welcome any others who wish to volunteer.
Currently, we have a small handful of people in the village who are self-isolating or where the family unit is in quarantine for cautionary reasons, but no known case of coronavirus – so far as we are aware. We would like anyone considering themselves vulnerable to get in touch, using the telephone number or email address shown above, so that we can be sure that you are supported. Similarly, it would be helpful to know of anyone who believe themselves to have the virus symptoms, so that we can keep track, on a confidential basis. We appreciate that some people will not want to tell us, and of course you may choose not to.
Thank you for all your help and cooperation. We really appreciate it and feel sure the village as a whole will benefit from it in the weeks ahead.’
