NWLDC are providing regular updates to the administrators of the WhatsApp 'Osgathorpe Support Group , set up to support the village during the COVID-19 pandemic . However, we realise that this group is not accessible for everyone and we have therefore created this page to ensure appropriate information is available to as many residents as possible.
Osgathorpe Support Group
Osgathorpe is an incredibly sociable village and many of us could ask friends or neighbours to go shopping if we couldn't leave the house. However, there may be some Osgathorpe residents who would find this more difficult.
Nick Sydenham has started a WhatsApp group for anyone in the village who would like to help out shopping for neighbours who are affected by coronavirus or anyone who is concerned they may struggle to get shopping, medicines, dog walking, or other support. If you would like to be added to the WhatsApp Osgathorpe Support Group send Nick a message through Facebook or by text to 07711 314294.
