The response from communities in Bromsgrove District has been fantastic and I could not be more proud of our local area.
Hundreds of volunteers have joined these groups to look out for and support the most vulnerable in our community.
When we look back on this time, I want to remember how we thought first of one another, undertook a collective community effort, and stood together in the face of adversity.
The following groups are doing just that. I include their information below and their is a full directory, with even more support groups, available here.
Furthermore, as ever, please do get in touch if you require my assistance via firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone on 020 7219 7027 or 01527 872135.
