Bunwell Coronavirus Heroes

Over the past weeks many of us have realised just how much we depend upon those brave professionals who, despite the significant risks to themselves, carry on with their essential duties to help get us through. The NHS, police, firefighters, delivery services, the local council staff who keep things healthy with bin collections and their support services to name but a few. But looking locally we have witnessed equally exceptional commitment to support the community and to be there should they be needed.

Bunwell Stores

Hannah, Steve and their friendly and helpful staff have been truly marvellous during recent weeks doing their utmost to ensure customer needs are met with safety of paramount importance. The home delivery service has been a great comfort and relief to those who are confined to their homes now and in the coming weeks ahead and can rest assured of its continuing availability.

Bunwell is so fortunate to have its wonderful Bunwell Stores and that extends to include Tacolneston, Carleton Rode, Aslacton, Forncett and Tibenham who have also depended very much recently in addition to regular visiting customers.

Bunwell & Carleton Rode Coronavirus Support

This support team has done incredible work in a matter of weeks to set up a group of volunteers who are available to help with shopping, prescription collection or simply a comforting chat. They have completed two mail drops to Bunwell houses providing contact details and they hope that anyone in need contacts them and they will do their best to help.

Also, if you can offer help in any way please contact the group.

Days Garage

Constants in an ever changing, sometimes crazy and dangerous world, Roger with Eddie soldier on to provide fuel, help and assistance, wherever possible, to keep us moving. Its business as usual and again how lucky we are to have Days. With some large garage groups closing it’s a welcome relief to have them so near.

And finally a huge thank you to our local farmers for whom it’s business as usual getting the crops ready for summer and beyond, helping us back on our feet when this is all over.
