Guidance on helping others
  • We must remind everyone that individuals are responsible for their own health and safety.
  • When helping others, please do not put yourself at risk in any way.
  • When visiting those in isolation, please do not enter their homes or have any physical contact.
  • Please treat those you help and do not know with the same caution that you would have with any other stranger.
  • Do not give or take any bank details, and please be especially careful in financial transactions that may arise when purchasing groceries etc.
  • If you are unsure about anything, please do not put yourself or others at risk.
  • Please follow NHS and Government guidance at all times, and contact Yateley Town Council for any further guidance.
