A core group of parish councillors are supported by a strong collective of local volunteers, all of whom donate their time to help and assist those in our village that need help to get through this pandemic.
In these unprecedented times, isn’t it nice to know that you’re not alone, that people around you really do care and that help is only a phone call away.

Financial Hardship Funds Available
If your budget is being stretched to the limit during this crisis, perhaps with children off school or with less money coming into the home as a result of not being able to work, the Angels may be able to help.   The Parish Council has been granted some funds to help those struggling financially at this difficult time.
We understand there may be reluctance to ask but all calls to the Angels are treated with absolute confidence and we want to help.

The Knapton Angels

if you need help, contact us

We want to help
So, if you are self-isolating for any reason, are over 70 years old or are classified as being particularly vulnerable to the virus, just contact the Knapton Angels and they’ll do their best to help you.

A growing army of volunteers from your parish are working with your Parish Council to deliver a volunteer service that will make sure you get what you need if you are unable to get it yourself.   Since 22nd March, the Angels have delivered over fifty solutions to households in the parish, some with flowers but all with a smile, and on 14th April the Angels were mentioned in the EDP.

We were also asked to write a feature in North Norfolk’s Crab Tales, which Liz Winter made a marvellous job of.

Our Groceries Hub for Trunch Corner Stores

Knapton Groceries Hub
One of our Angels has arranged to act as a hub for grocery orders placed with Jenny of Trunch Corner Stores by Knapton parishioners.

This is how it works
Place your order by telephone with Trunch Corner Stores and pay for it at the time, letting them know that it is for delivery to the Knapton Angels Hub.   The store will deliver to us sometime after 4pm on Tuesdays and Fridays and once we receive your order, one of our Angels will deliver it to you same day.

It is important that all orders are paid for over the phone at the time they are ordered because for purposes of transparency, the Angels do not want to handle money.

Minimum Order
Jenny has had to impose a minimum order value of £10 (which covers the card machine provider’s additional charges for taking payments over the phone) and a small charge for managing the service, cost of fuel etc.

Other Local Shops that will Deliver

Mundesley Butchers
2 Back Street, Mundesley, NR11 8JJ
01263 720796

Ideally, you should arrange items from the butchers to be delivered directly to you due to the need to keep it cool and for reasons of hygiene.

However, we can do collections from the butchers, assuming out was paid for at the time of ordering, but it would have to be delivered immediately to those who have ordered it as it cannot be brought to the hub and stored for several hours.   This may not always be possible, but we will try if there is no other alternative.

Country Pickings
19 High Street, Mundesley, NR11 8LH
01263 720054

Country Pickings say that they are more than happy to take orders over the phone for us to collect as long as they are paid for at the time of ordering.

However, we would ask that if the order is heavy that you request that it is put into several bags to make delivery easier.
We ask this because we have just done a delivery that was heavier than our Angel should have lifted.

Government Advice
what you need to do…

Social Distancing

The Government says…

As lockdown is slowly being relaxed, measures are being reduced;

  1. People should keep at least 1m from anyone else
  2. Face coverings or masks must be worn on public transport and in shops
  3. Not all businesses and venues can re-open yet
  4. Stopping all gatherings of more than six people in public.

Every person in the UK must comply with these new measures and the relevant authorities, including the police, have been given the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.

How to get medical help

What to do if you need medical help

If you need medical help, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.
If you need help or advice not related to coronavirus:

  • for health information and advice, use the NHS website or your GP surgery website
  • for urgent medical help, use the NHS 111 online service – only call 111 if you’re unable to get help online
  • for life-threatening emergencies, call 999 for an ambulance

  • stay in touch with family and friends over the phone or on social media
