Many villagers are already helping neighbours, friends and family who need help. BAT, the Benenden Action Team of volunteers, is here to help you as a ‘good neighbour’ if you need it and offer help to those who can’t leave their house because they are ill or in quarantine.
We are not replacing the support you are already getting, hiring or giving, just to be on hand if you need additional assistance. If so, please call your closest BAT contact. Each is supported by volunteers.
We have split the parish into the following areas, each with a lead co-ordinator and each supported by many volunteers. If you are self-isolating at home without family, friends or neighbours to assist you please call the closest one to you and they will help.
