The Brixton Volunteer Prescription Pickup ends on 9th July 2020

In March this year Brixton Parish Council, as part of its Community Emergency Plan, set up a volunteer prescription pickup service in response to the COVID-19 lockdown. This service benefitted 70 residents in our community and all have said how much they have appreciated this.

It’s time to wind down this support that was needed during lockdown. Our Volunteers and Coordinator have been amazing, but they now need to get back to work and get their lives back too.

The last Volunteer pick up will be Thursday 9th July, with no volunteer prescription pick up after that, including for emergencies. Attached are a letter from us and explanatory email from Yealm Medical which we delivered to all on the Prescription pick up list on Saturday. There are various support options; no need for anyone to feel abandoned, or stuck.

A really strong community spirit has developed over the past three months and we don’t want to lose that. There are lots of ways we can keep it going, so please keep suggestions coming. We are far from through COVID-19, but now are better able to understand and manage the risk. Meantime, sincere thanks to all our Volunteers and Prescriptions Coordinator from all of us.

Brixton Village Magazine - Message from Editor

There will be no delivery of the April Edition of the Brixton Village Magazine.

The magazine was printed but contained many announcements and advertisements for the varied monthly activities, all of which have been cancelled - regrettably after the printing.
This, coupled with the latest ‘stay at home’ requirement, led us to decide to cancel deliveries as we could not feel justified in asking our more than two dozen volunteer deliverers to make a non-essential outing to deliver largely irrelevant content.

We do not know what subsequent months will bring but rest assured that Brixton Magazine will return as soon as things become more normal again.
