Colne Engaine community response
Gosfield Grapevine Community Group
We can only support people living in Gosfield who have no other way of getting their prescriptions and/or shopping.
We also want to ensure that no one slips through the net so are encouraging people to let us know if they are worried about someone who may be isolated or struggling or who doesn't have friends/relatives nearby.

Unite in Kind
White Colne community response
This group is to offer support to people within Braintree and surrounding areas.
If you need help getting shopping during isolation then please don’t hesitate to ask and I hope other members will be able to help, this also extends to any ask people have during quarantine. Let’s act like a community and stand together, no one needs to feel alone during isolation
Cherry McKean, who set up the Earls Colne community action response and Spike Townsend
who set up the Colne Engaine Community Response back in March, have a message for you.
‘’We know these restrictions are difficult, and the vast majority of our residents have done an excellent job
in doing their bit to slow the spread, but we cannot get complacent as cases are rising, more hospital admissions, more deaths and more suffering.
We owe it to ourselves, our loved ones, and our community to not let that happen.
Let's work together to stick to the rules & do it for our community.
This group was set up back in March to help the community in lock down, the parish council phone number was used as a hotline for helping people out with shopping requests and prescription etc this is still active if needed. From time to time posts relevant to covid-
We are here to assist anyone in Stisted however we can during the virus crisis.
If you are in isolation we can arrange someone to collect your shopping, go and get your prescriptions, be a point of contact or just give you a buzz. We care!
We’re people around Essex who are committed to tackling loneliness and isolation through
acts of kindness.
Now, more than ever, isolation is affecting the people of Essex. The outbreak of coronavirus is forging physical barriers, but this doesn’t have to mean loneliness.
Together with hundreds of community, charity and voluntary groups around Essex, we’re building an online community of kindness. We’re helping people connect with friends, neighbours and strangers. We’re working together to help everyone overcome feelings of isolation.
Our social movement is inspiring people to be kind and support each other, even when we can’t be together in the same physical space. Together, we can combat the effects of coronavirus. Together, we can connect our community with kindness.
Only members can see who's in the group and what they post on facebook.
