MASHAM COMBINED VOLUNTEERS – FOOD & PRESCRIPTION DELIVERY

The two volunteer lists in Masham have now been combined. The Masham Churches list of helpers with food and shopping has now come together with the list of people helping with prescription collections which is coordinated by Mashamshire Community Office. The combined list of over 70 volunteers around Masham and the surrounding villages are available to help with shopping, prescription collection and any other issues.

If you have volunteered with either group, you may be contacted either by the Church or Mashamshire Community Office to help someone in need near you.

Please call 01765 680200 if you need help.

There are also local volunteer groups emerging in surrounding villages – we will try and keep up with these on our Covid-19 Local Info Page here.

CLARIFICATION
NHS Volunteers are coordinated centrally by them and are focused on helping people who the NHS has specifically identified as being vulnerable due to their health conditions. The local volunteer groups above and coordinated locally and are available to help anyone in the local community who is in need of help.

North Yorkshire Closes Waste + Recycling Centres

All Household Waste Recycling Centres in North Yorkshire will be closed with immediate effect until further notice following the Prime Minister’s statement last night. This decision does not affect your household refuse or recycling collection service.

Whilst it may be tempting to use this period of confinement to carry out DIY work or gardening, residents are advised to avoid creating unnecessary waste until HWRCs are able to reopen.

Cllr Andrew Lee Executive member for Waste Management said “It is clear from the Prime Ministers statement that we should all only be making essential journeys and we have therefore taken the decision to close all HWRCs in North Yorkshire to help reduce the opportunity for the virus to spread. We will of course continually review that position and we will reopen them at the earliest practicable opportunity. Please hang on to any bulky waste until the sites reopen and don’t be tempted to fly tip. Fly tipping is an offence and offenders will be prosecuted.”
