NEWS FROM WARTON VILLAGE

Please note that unfortunately, owing to the current ongoing situation with Covid19, the May Coffee Morning and Plant Sale have been cancelled.   Hopefully the existing programme will resume when safe and members are advised to ‘watch this space’ for further developments and changes to the remaining 2020 diary.

You, or people you know may be finding themselves in difficult circumstances due to these unprecedented times. Many now suddenly find themselves in households with no income whilst waiting for central government support, and may never normally be inclined to ask for help. There is absolutely NO shame or loss of dignity in accessing the support families may need to see them through this time.

Lancaster City Council has set up a 7-day telephone and email helpline to make sure people can get reliable support:

Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (for businesses)

The phone lines are currently open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and every Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 3pm.
