When the first Covid-19 lockdown began Quarndon Parish Council and several other community groups covering the Parish of Quarndon got together to arrange Quarndon Support Group, a network of volunteers who can help to support community members, particularly those who are self-isolating.
Members of Quarndon Support Group appreciate that during the most dangerous stages of the pandemic many relatives, friends and neighbours made arrangements to help one another, which was great. Today we still want to ensure that 100% of households in the Parish have contact details for someone local who is linked into this network of volunteers who can try to provide help if/when it is required.
