Within the community, friends and neighbours will be supporting each other. The Gilsland and Longbyre Covid-19 Community Group has been setup with this in mind.

Some of the things the group may be able to help with:


  • Information about services and businesses within the local community
  • Collecting essential supplies and prescriptions
  • Posting mail
  • A friendly phone call 

The group cannot provide medical advice or social care services.
