Communities seek champions as they rally against the coronavirus threat

As the threat of Covid19 changes by the day communities in Longlevens are rallying one another to volunteer to make sure no resident goes needy.

Using the social media platform Facebook the movement has already captured the imagination of scores of residents who have signed up to become community champions.

Work is still going on to ensure every road has someone covering it, with the task ahead being to carry out tasks such as shopping and visiting the chemist.

Prnted cards are being organised by the growing netwrok of volunteers in Longevens and Elmbridge on which they write their names and contact details before dropping them through people's letter boxes.

It is just one of the many such movements springing up county wide as residents rally to ensure the periods of isolation and soscial distancing do not leave anyone in desperate circumstances.

Sarah Sawyer, writing on the noticeboard, said: "Hi I am writing this post on behalf of Becky Booth. I have compiled a list of roads in the Longlevens and Elmbridge area that do not yet have a volunteer. I have used her latest list of volunteers so hopefully it is correct.

"Please, if you want to volunteer for any of these roads can you put your name and the road in the comments section and we will add you to the list or if you know someone on these roads would you mind asking them to help?

"We have been asked to share the list of volunteers with the police, Elmbridge and longlevens schools, Longlevens surgery, local councillors and local churches as people are ringing them asking for help.

"If you are happy to share this information with them please could one person from each road DM me your phone number and email address starting the message with your road.

"If you have not yet got together as a group to choose a representative and are unsure whether to message me your details please do as I'd rather have too many per road than none. Your details will not be made public."
