Over the last few days, newsletters have been delivered to homes across the village with an update from the High Halden 'COVID 19' Community Group. A copy can be downloaded from HH COVID 19 Community Gp page on this website but here is an extract of some of the key content.

“May 2020

Dear Neighbour

We wanted to update you on the help that you can get from the COVID 19 Community Group in High Halden. Our volunteers continue to offer support to anyone who needs it. We wanted to reassure everyone that we are still here in spite of some lifting of the government lock down. Many people in the vulnerable group are staying safe at home and we want to be able to support that for as long as is necessary. We also offer help to parents who would prefer not to take their children shopping and anyone struggling in any way with getting what they need. We do not ask questions as to why you need help.

The group is now able to provide emergency food parcels. Speak to one of our co-ordinators if you need assistance with essentials; all enquiries will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. If you know of someone that is struggling to feed themselves and/or their family please let them know about our service; we don’t want anyone to go without necessities in our community. In the longer term we are considering setting up a village food bank; the fallout from the COVID crisis may be considerable and we want to be there to help.

Our volunteers are able to provide support in the following areas:

  • Prescriptions and Shopping
  • Telephone Chat
  • Assistance with navigating your way around the internet

We have a regularly updated booklet which contains general advice/information on shops and farms that are operating a delivery service in the area. This is available to view/download on the Parish of High Halden Facebook page and the village website:

To get in touch, please call one of the co-ordinators below:

Pauline Rose: 07754 797968 / 01233 850935

Kristina Hoath: 07966 396877 / 01233 850198

Or if you prefer you can email us on [email protected]
