COVID-19

By nature Golden Lane residents like to look out for their neighbours and many informal groups are self organising. A group of residents headed by resident Councillor Sue Pearson have formed the GLE Covid 19 Hub to support these groups - email glecovid19@gmail.com or leave a message on 07714 777692

More info on the Covid-19 page which we'll try to keep regularly updated with resident specific info and useful links.

You can engage with other website members on the Health and Wellbeing forum
