The printing of "News from the Villages" is suspended for the duration. Age of deliverers is a problem, whether the printer can get supplies is very much in doubt.
Please see the latest post in respect of East Woodhay & Highclere Coronavirus Community Support, who are willing to extend their help to Burghclere residents.
Note that the criteria are:
1. Must be a patient at Woolton Hill Surgery
2. Must be entitled to free prescriptions.
Anyone who also wishes to help as a volunteer should contact them at ewhneighbourcare.org.uk/volunteer and indicate they are from Burghclere. Local knowledge of where deliveries are supposed to go would be much appreciated!
Grateful if you could forward to your membership/contacts. Thank you.
Why is it so difficult for us to appreciate the scale of what an unchecked global pandemic could do?
It may have something to do with how difficult it is to intuitively understand abstract concepts like exponential growth.
Her is an example: if you took 30 steps from your front door, with each step twice as large as the last, how far could you get?
the answer might surprise you - it's 26 times the earths circumference
Please can everyone start taking this seriously - your actions will save someones life.
