We’re all ready shopping for friends who are asthmatic and diabetic. Can do some more in Ipswich.
Arrangements we’re using are email shopping list or message via FB/text.
Shopping delivered to doorstep and text/doorbell rung to say it’s there.
We chat from around 3m away while the shopping is taken in.
Bank transfer to settle up.
I’m fortunate that I have a Makro card for the business, though they are restricting amounts of pasta and rice that you can buy at any one time.Posted 2 weeks ago
Its a good call. There are some folk like on here that will be in isolation for a while.
Only 10 days to go for me!Posted 2 weeks ago
Our little cul du sac has a whatsapp group. We’re all helping each other out without actually having to get too near.
I’m organising a large milk delivery from our milkman.
Another neighbour is going to a wholesalers for the few of us who have not been panic buying, and are now can’t get basic foods.

Unsurprisingly, I, like most in recruitment, have a reasonable amount of time on my hands at the moment!
You guys are being very kind with this – It’s vital to hekp each other at a time like this. Singletrack is a great community.
But I fear that nationally focussed aid group will soon be far too big, so really hard to administer ans to search for help on, especially in a forum format like Singletrack.
I’ll carry with this message
– but maybe we are not really allowed to do it anyway, given the very restiricted reasons for which we are allowed out – the subject of mutual aid needs addressing by Boris’s pals. Not that we aren’t going to help each other if there’s a real need whatever the rules.
I can see a plus in making it bikers helping other bikers for sure, so maybe it’s possible to clone the ideas below.
has a Covid 19 Mutual Aid group for example for Hove & one for Brighton – “Covid 19 Mutual Aid” seems to be the key search term
my very local group
Example – list of groups local to Brighton:
interactive map here
They say – if there is no local group yet, please consider setting one up (get in touch if you need help) and add to the list! X
Nextdoor groups (online forum)
is useful too – for neighbourly communication including where to buy food etc. and has lots of local groups –
it’s a bit hard to navigate but once you’re joined up to a local group its easier
I’d join a local group and then ask for the Coronavirus or Covid 19 specific links
‘Sum of us’ has just started a national initiative to co-ordinate groups but its not very organised as yet:

@mudfish The National schemes are good and the response has been great. We’re offering a local scheme for local people (our friends and mates who use this forum) we’re an addition to not an instead of. We also seem to have people here who have particular skills as @lunge has offered earlier.
