BARN CLOSES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Barn will be closed until at least Friday 17th April 2020 because of the coronavirus situation.
Friends of Westdene Green took advice from a variety of sources and we have decided it is in the best interests of everyone to do this to delay the likely impact on those least able to cope with the virus and, of course, the capacity of the NHS to help them. We took this decision reluctantly and after careful thought. This means our Annual Gathering in April will be postponed.

STREET BY STREET SUPPORT -
WITHDEAN WARD

‘Coordinating help for people on your street’

Friends of Westdene Green is aware that lots of people in our community are already reaching out and supporting, or wanting to support their neighbours during this challenging time. To support this work collectively, and ensure no one who may want or need this support (now or over the next few weeks) misses out, we’d like to re-establish our street rep system and keep connected as a wider community.

Street Reps are local people who are willing to be one of several on their street working as a small team to support their neighbours. 

Each street will need an identified ‘lead’ street rep who will coordinate the reps on their street and is prepared to be the main point of contact. FoWDG can provide a template which you can amend, to share contact details and a list of help on offer which will need to posted by each street rep team to everyone on their street ensuring no one is missed. FoWDG can also provide contact details, links to existing groups and online support etc. as helpful.

If you are interested in joining us,or are already providing similar support and want to connect please indicate how you are willing to be involved on this form

We will then be in touch to share information and details of other Street Reps.
