* LYME REGIS COMMUNITY SUPPORT
A Facebook page has been set up to co-ordinate all the volunteers who are offering support to their local neighbours - shopping, collecting presciptions, giving lifts, phone support etc... street by street - road by road. The scheme is being co-ordinated by Cheryl Reynolds, Vickie Cottle and Fran Williams. This is a fantastic community initiative brought together very quickly in the past couple of days. Below is today's message from Fran who is putting together a list of volunteers and their areas. You can see how to sign up as a volunteer. If you don't use Facebook, you can email Fran direct on firstname.lastname@example.org. .
