    We probably should have thought about this earlier...

    But does anyone need help? It could be some shopping, or a prescription collecting, or just a chat...

    ... If you need help, let us know, there are a lot of us on this forum, and I'm sure we can all help out in some way if anyone is in any kind of difficulty...

    Great idea.

    I'm happy to help if I can and if anyone doesn't want to publicly ask for help on the Forum feel free to PM me.

    This is exactly what the Forum should be good at - and masks will help to avoid contravening the anonymity clause.

    I'm too far away to be of any use, I expect.

    Where I am, it is official policy that you should ring the local cops if you get stuck - they'll sort out shopping, prescriptions and even dog walking.

    These options may not be available from Stafford nick, but someone on here could well sort you out..

    PM any of us. We will help if we can, or find someone who can help.

    Another source if help is the 'Nextdoor' app, there is a map on there with people local to your area, and how they can offer help & what they can do.

    Please don't be alone, lonely, or in need and think there is no one who can help, we will all try our best.

    I didn't think of the anonymity issue, but if you can find me a Garda uniform & possibly riot headwear, at least I'll look like I'm on 'official business'.

    You will be of immense use even if you are not in the country, as you are the 'goto' person for knowing who can do what & what help they can give....

    Maybe not a good idea to ask me to go shopping... Lots of sons ' well in date' Food from Aldi , which looked good when I bought it, was full of mould by the next day despite going straight down there from the shop in a cool bag and him putting straight in his fridge. A 50/50 loaf with tomorrows date is green this morning :mad:

    Co-op stuff is still fine though ..

    I see Wildwood Co-op is trialling home delivery service ( found out from Baswich Facebook) via an App

    Putin has his back.

    A Burgess de nos jours.

    F**k him, and all that have sailed in him.

    If you have supported him, your wrongness will appear traitorous in retrospect.

    We're good but I can offer help, will be off to Aldi now.

    How is the university your daughter is at doing it @kyoto49 ? We heard lots of noise about mass testing but it seems to have gone away in England. I know Scotland are doing it.

    I'm mostly good thanks. I seem to be more organised right now strangely, I think it's partly due to not having the pressure to go out there I'm not as stressed so I'm coping better. Thank you for thinking of me.

    I'm OK, but I could do with a 2 litre of milk, if anybody's going past.

    I did think about tagging you, but you're a little bit off my beaten track.
