Are you able to help?
Our borough councillors are co-ordinating with the long-established Chobham Care group and other village organisations to get help to people isolated. Many people have volunteered and if you can join the effort, please complete this quick online volunteering form. If you are able to help others in the community, we'd encourage you to do so through this co-ordinated group.
