This is the latest list of businesses delivering food & more to people’s homes in the Rhondda. This list has been sent to our network of community volunteers to pass to the people they are keeping an eye out for in their street.
We don’t have all of the Rhondda’s streets covered yet with volunteers. Our aim is to get at least one person in every street.
Can you get involved? You can sign up as a community volunteer here:
MESSAGE FROM DARREN PARK:
Hi wonderful people of Ferndale.
Darran Park is open for your one walk a day.
Alun, my co-worker is there on his own and hasn't received the required protection or many bin bags left so please can you do the following :
Only use open bins not closed ones please as he can get stuff out not touching the bin. Or take your litter and dog poo home.
Playground is closed do not use it as virus could be present on the equipment.
Do not pick the flowers, leave them for everybody to enjoy.
Do enjoy your lovely green space, enjoy the birds, the peace and time to slow down.
Stay safe stay sane and see you all when this crises us over.
