“We have contact with most families in the area through our Facebook pages,” explains Sally Anne. “We keep in touch with families this way. We ask them if they have any concerns and we pass out information on protection from COVID19, on cocooning, self-isolation and social distancing. People understand it better when it’s coming from one of their own.
“People in our area are doing very, very good. They are keeping their social distance and I’m very proud of the efforts they’re making.”
